Tried a drop shot nymphing rig

Interesting video for sure. I felt that groan right at the beginning. Tight lines!

Drop shot is the term made popular by Kelly Galloup. He called it drop shot after the method used by bass fishers.

I've been using a drop-shot or bounce nymphing. I like it. I like how Kelly Galloup hitches his dropper above a blood knot to stop the dropper from twitsing around the main leader. Also makes for much easier fly changes, especially after the dropper is too short for my fat fingers to tie a new fly onto.
