To nymph or not to nymph? That is the question. Sure, we all enjoy catching trout on the surface on a dry fly but that isn't a reality most of the time. As trout fisherman, our best line of attack is to abide by the old adage that trout feed under the surface roughly 90% of the time throughout their life. Sure.... we have the opportunity to catch fish on the surface that other 10% but that doesn't seem like good odds. Go with the percentages. Fish nymphs, pupae or emergers a majority of the time and your fish hooking rate will increase dramatically. Putting the fish in the net is another topic.
