Do the swing guys really hate nymph fishermen, or are they just jealous because we catch so many steelhead? Both swing and nymph methods have a dedicated army of fanatic followers. The swing guys have all of the advantages when fishing broad expanses of water. The nymph guys have the advantage when fishing narrower, well defined slots. No doubt the angler who uses both swing and nymph methods will catch even more steelhead. Why not carry two rods and do both?
