Tactical Tuesday - @kelso_ff

BALANCING A EURO ROD.
There are many things that go into a good Euro Nymphing set-up, and one of the most important things is balance. Balance is partially personal preference, but most anglers typically like the balance point somewhere up on the blank side of the cork. Personally, I like it quite close to the end of the cork so I can nymph with a finger on the blank—giving me a little more sensitivity for strike detection.

For most 10’ 3 weight rods, a reel that is app. 5 oz will get you to this balance point. A balanced rod will help you with arm fatigue throughout the day, and will keep you fishing strong.

TAILS FROM A DRIFT @myflyfishingbuddy

The cold months of the year are not only a fine time to catch a few fish with frozen fingers and guides but it is also a good time to explore your waters. Take a few minutes here and there, keep your hands in your gloves or pockets and walk the river, study your favorite holes. 
The typically lower flows will allow you to see subsurface structure which, for most of the year, is...well...well below the surface.  
Understanding the subsurface structure will allow you to comprehend better how a fish may lie in a particular run. It will also afford you the opportunity to potentially hang up on fewer rocks. This understanding will ostensibly allow you to make more productive drifts. If memory serves you well, you may even lose fewer hooked fish to structure. Knowing where subsurface hazards are does put you in a better position to avoid them when a fish is making his/her run. 

Have fun out there and thank you for reading.
