|Well I don't know very many unique nymphing rigs other than these four;|
Conventional set-up with one tail fly and one or more dropper flies, spaced out about 12" or more inches above the point fly.
Drop shot nymphing where you put a significantly heavy BB or many BB's at the end of the tippet and rig up droppers off of the main tippet and add the flies to the droppers so the weight is on the bottom and the flies are floating at varying points in the water column.
Drop a nymph, or two, below some sort of indicator.
Drop a nymph off of the bend of a dry fly - add a piece of tippet to the bend of the dry fly hook anywhere from 6" - to whatever and add a nymph to this section of tippet. It casts a 100X better than any indicator set-up and sometimes a trout will rise to the dry fly too.

|Czech nymph rig-|
Leader- 6' 4x flouro. flat no taper. Tie in a 10" piece of old fly line,amnesia, or yellow stren, about 15" down from your "butt".
Tie a small tippet ring on the lead end, then attach 16" 4x to another tippet ring. Tie a 16" dropper and a 7" dropper off the last ring, then a 7" dropper off the first. Be sure to use your heavy fly on the middle 7" dropper. I've also found that if my droppers go longer than 7 or 8 inches they twist up a good bit. I'm not sure if that's how the pros rig it ,but that is how I do it and it works for me. Total leader length is about 8 1/2 feet, best suited for a long rod.

|Hey Matt, We had been discussing Czech nymphing; remember this one?|

I copied Jeff's explanation of the Czech nymph rig and sent an email to myself with the info. Thanks.
