TRY AND TRY AGAIN
When a fish has shown interest, it’s important not to be hasty. Maintain the swing, keeping the fly hitching all the way to the bank, before re-casting. Then swing the fly at the same angle or adjust its speed or angle. If there’s no response, try a smaller fly – fishing it slower will create a smaller wake and this often produces results.
This grilse couldn’t resist the lure of a hitch tube.
