The Best Way to Fish with a Fly

“The best way to fish with a fly would be to drop the fly into the river and the fish would eat it.  However, there are two problems with this technique—one theoretical, the other practical.  The theoretical problem is how would we know when the fish ate it and how would we know which fish.  The practical problem is that there is no way to retrieve the fish.  Therefore, we must use line.”

Rim Chung’s RS2 fly is now or has been sold throughout the United States by most of the major commercial fly companies such as Orvis, Umpqua, L.L. Bean, Dan Bailey’s, and many others.  Yet, Rim Chung remains largely an unknown.  He has never promoted himself, his fly, or his method of fly fishing.  Rim Chung has no commercial interest in fly fishing, he is not a guide, nor has ever sold his fly, nor has he ever sought or been offered compensation for the flattery of the copies of his flies, which are now widely distributed.  The purpose of this site is not commercial and the upcoming book about him is simply a tribute to his legendary success in fly fishing with the nymph–simply ideas which I hope you might discover as useful as I have.
