Learn to Czech/Euro nymph with Rob Vaz

I have been fortunate enough to learn this technique before all the hype hit NZ

Learning from some of the best in Europe I both researched czech nymphing and was one of the few competition fisherman to start fishing this way in the early 1990's. Of course this technique has been around for some time. I am happy to share all the secrets of Euro and Czech nymphing with anyone I guide. A deadly technique that can put you into more fish! better contact and an exciting new way to fish.

Contact Rob to book a trip to hone your techniques. Or keep and eye out for Czech nymphing clinics.
