Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Know How -

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.
