I covered a group of salmon last season .I was literally standing by them .
Was swinging the flies in front of them and watching their movement to the fly they didn't even flinch or move to the fly.

I found it very interesting and even though did not catch will be doing it again this year.There's probably 2 pools where I can fish that I would be able to sight fish at the salmon.

These are Testwood Wood nymphs can't remember the guys name but used on the well known Testwood Salmon Pool.

Never heard them called that before.
Was trying to find the original email I had off the guy who sent them to me.

He might of used tungsten but think they were brass and silver beads.Not going to matter but could be wrong.
Reason being you are sight fishing close in and watching the fly ready for the take.Being on a short line you are visually watching it all the time so it's only a short arc by the time you flick it upstream and it sweeps past you.

It was good watching the fish but they were switched off and didn't budge at all.Great to see.
