SEARCH­ING IS THE NAME OF THE GAME

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Advice -

Un­like dry fly fish­ing when trout give away their po­si­tion, few clues ex­ist to lead us di­rectly to feed­ing trout when nymph­ing. In­stead, we rely on past ex­pe­ri­ence and/or search­ing the wa­ter. It makes sense to start where you ex­pe­ri­enced suc­cess on your last out­ing. Search the wa­ter me­thod­i­cally by fan cast­ing be­fore tak­ing a few paces along the bank. Re­mem­ber too that flies pre­sented at var­i­ous an­gles in­vari­ably fish back on a curved plane that of­ten en­tice fish. Make a point of hunt­ing out un­der­wa­ter fea­tures, like a weedy bay, sunken trees, or other sub­merged struc­ture.
