I left the aforementioned Mr. Feuerstein´s article in my archive for more than two years. Thus today I publish his challenge which slightly reminds me of activities of our southern neighbours against the nuclear power plant in Temelin. However, I do not want to offend any of my Austrian friends, because there are also individuals using a common sense and there are plenty of them. And now I would comment Günter´s mistakes.

Although it was more than 30 years ago but I remember quite well the time when my friends and I started fly fishing. From this day forth we fell in love with the picture of the enrolling line in the air which carried our flies to the target. No long rod, no heavy tackle, just an artificial fly casted with a long elastic weight called a fly line. It was a great feeling! Something totally new. We loved it and still do.
The beauty of the enroling line is what makes fly fishing special and what makes the big difference to spinn or match fishing where you just cast a weight without doing any false casts. We fished with dry flies first as dry fly fishing was for us the most spectacular method. In the end of the seventies when we tried to start using underwater patterns - aka nymphs. We fished the Bregenzer and Dornbirner Ache at that time, two of the larger rivers in Vorarlberg, the province in the western part of Austria.

AS winter takes hold, the state of our rivers will drastically change. Be it raging floods, freezing temperatures or a combination of both, these extremes send grayling to more comfortable parts of a river, usually close to the streambed in deeper runs and pools. Given this, to stay in touch with them, nymph tactics will be at the forefront.
On occasions a flurry of olives or midges will bring fish to the surface, even on the coldest of days. But, generally, bugs and nymphs like caseless caddis, cased caddis, shrimps and stonefty nymphs provide grayling with winter sustenance.

Robbie Winramgets tying with the latest dubbing blends from the Czech experts...
THE Czechs are masters of nymph fishing tactics, and as you would expect this expertise rolls over into their fly-tying as well. After all, what's the good of perfecting the technique if the flies don't match up to the job.

England's Scott Nellins makes his own for very delicate presentation on rivers
I'm sure most river anglers have used the New Zealand (or 'Duo') method as well as the hugely popular Czech Nymphing tactics. Both these techniques are very effective in the correct conditions but their popularity can also lead to their downfall.
In clear water for example these tactics are less effective as fish can be put off by the splashes of three heavy nymphs when Czech Nymphing or the repeated casting of the New Zealand method.

After seven years organizing the original Czech Nymphing Masterclass and 185 participants from all over the world, it is clear that the Czech Nymphing technique has become a standard skill for every serious flyfisher besides the dry fly technique.
A lot of people think that Czech Nymphing is about long rods (10+ foot), three heavy nymphs (leadbombs) and fishing with only a short line.

LEVEN hosted one of the five sessions and has been kind to me as I won the Brown Bowl here in the Home International in 2003.
I base my approach on the information gathered in last year's practice and my general wild brown trout experience.

IAIN Barr achieved a unique England double by winning individual and team gold at this year's World Championships in Scotland.
Eleven years as a Trout Fisherman writer, Iain had previously won almost every domestic title available. But nothing can compare with having his name etched alongside fellow Englishmen Tony Pawson, Brian Leadbetter (twice world champion) and Jeremy Hermann.

Jigs flies, with a compact lead ball on the hook, began to be used approximately 25 years ago on the Traun River in Austria, where local fishing rules allowed the use of only one fly. In May 1988, Mr. Karel Holub brought some weighted jig nymphs to the Czech Republic for world champion Slavoj Svoboda, who used them with great success in the National Selection competition on the Vltava River in Vyssi Brod. Subsequently, Mr. Klima started to produce jigs flies for Rudi Heger, and in 1990 Mr. Jan Siman started to sell lead-weighted jig nymphs in the Czech Republic. At that time, VMC jig hooks with a 90 degree bend were available in the Czech market. Soon after our success with these jig-nymphs in the World Championships, they were banned in FIPS-Mou events. Several years later in 2001, a change in FIPS-Mou rules allowed the use of one bead with a maximum diameter of 4 mm, and Czechs continued to fish with jigs.

Spring Time is the best time for Stillwater fishing in the big lakes in the west of Ireland. But saying that I don't mean mayfly time. My friends and I head for the big Lough Mask in the end of April for the last fifteen years. At this time billions of chironomids hatch and also a lot of small olives. Wet fly fishing has a strong tradition in Ireland, but we do something different. We target the individual rising fish in the shallow bays of the big lake, were most of the hatches occur. Here in the sheltered waters you can see the fish rising, provided there is not too much wind. A flat calm is very difficult, a small ripple on the water is perfect. Most of the time we have the lake to ourselves as the wet fly fisherman need more wind.
