I describe my favorite French leader set up for long range nymphing large rivers.

I am often asked to demonstrate my favorite french leader set up for fishing the larger western rivers. Since I started using the Czech nymph method in 2001, I have experimented with a lot of leaders and how to build the ideal leader for the type of nymph fishing that I do. Many years of evolution and research has landed me on the french leader system described in Jonathon White's book, Nymphing The New Way.

 In this video I talk about how I rig up my tactical leader rig with 3 flies.
