Dale1386, reading your opening post, you mentioned how your line gets caught on the loop to loop connections from your fly line and leader.

True Czech nymphing uses no fly line at all. you're supposed to use a very long leader, 45 to 50 feet long.

Check out Jonathan Barnes, A Guide to Czech Nymphing. You can see this on his You Tube videos.

I'd bring the link up for you, but I'm having trouble doing so.

Jonathan explains it all pretty much in detail right from the beginning of the video.

Semantics again, but regardless czech nymphing actually uses shorter leaders and heavier flys. French / spanish / what is now dubbed "euro" nymphing utilizes long leaders, 25'+.

I've also already posted jonathans video above, might want to read the whole thread before posting..

In some states leaders longer than 18' are not permitted in fly fishing waters.
You could just as well get a 9'- 11' noodle rod with a ultra light spinning reel filled with 6# Berkley Nanofil, a float, and nymphs of your choice and effortlessly achieve 80' drag free drifts.

Well, if that's how you prefer to do it, go ahead. I live in Colo. so I'm not familiar with the laws in N.C., are long leaders illegal there? Just asking.

PAbrownie, your link doesn't open up to Jonathan Barnes. Instead it brought up everything but him.

Here is the rule in PA;

§ 65.14. Catch and release fly-fishing only.

(a) The Executive Director, with the approval of the Commission, may designate waters as catch and release fly-fishing only. The designation of waters as catch and release fly-fishing only shall be effective when the waters are so posted after publication of a notice of designation in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.

(b) It is unlawful to fish in waters designated and posted as catch and release fly-fishing only except in compliance with the following requirements:

(1) Fishing may be done with artificial flies and streamers constructed of natural or synthetic materials so long as all flies are constructed in a normal fashion with components wound on or about the hook or hooks. Use or possession of any other lures or substances is prohibited.

(2) Fishing shall be done with tackle which is limited to fly rods, fly reels and fly line with a maximum of 18 feet in leader material or monofilament line attached. Spinning, spincast and casting rods and reels are prohibited.


Outside of C&R FFO waters any leader length is permitted.
