Stillwater Nymph Fishing

Bristol Water fisheries provide some of the best conditions in the country for perfecting the art of Stillwater nymph fishing. The mature shallow lakes breed millions of midge and other invertebrates, which the trout feed on avidly. Learn how to imitate the insects, how to fish the imitations and how to select the areas to fish.
