I have never tried this technique; infact I dont think I own a nymph fly yet.
To get the fish down to salmon level, is it purely done by the weight of the nymph, or do you use a weighted polyleader on a floating line.
I assume its normally done in low water; is it a sink and draw technique?
For me a floater is best. It helps with casting and, most importantly, striking. Yes sink and draw, but induced take is the key. The perfect presentation is to get the fish in view without it seeing you and get the nymph the drift down below the fishes eye line and then lift in front of it. More often than not it will chase it and sometimes take it. Strike as soon as it closes its mouth!
