Retrieves - lures
Lures should be retrieved erratically, so vary the style of retrieve even during one draw back before recasting. Try to impart as much life into the marabou tail as possible because it’s the movement that the fish find attractive. If the trout are in chasing mood and eager to follow the lures at speed, try a roly-poly retrieve which involves placing the rod butt under your arm and then using a hand-over-hand motion to retrieve the fly line back. This retrieves the flies back at a continuous speed, which is sometimes very successful. But it often pays to vary things up with short pauses and short or long strips or slow pulls and a figure-of-eight inbetween. Once you’ve discovered the retrieve type and speed, focus on that.
