Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Tactics -


Be care­ful when an­chor­ing in a flat calm. You’re likely to en­force an ex­clu­sion zone due to con­tin­ual cast­ing dries over the same wa­ter.


Free drift­ing, even in a light wind, al­lows you to cover new fish and adapt quickly upon spot­ting them. It’s less re­strict­ing.


When sunny, tar­get any ris­ing fish with a small greased up scruffy Hare’s Ear. Cast to rise form and give a lit­tle pull.


If trout are tak­ing nymphs higher in the wa­ter col­umn, add a buoy­ant foam fly to the point. This holds the nymphs up.


If fish are tak­ing deeper down or at var­i­ous depths then add a heav­ier Buzzer to the point, which will an­chor the leader down.


When fish­ing dry fly in a rea­son­able calm, use a sin­gle fly and keep it afloat with Gink. Two flies might spook the fish.
