BREAK IT DOWN

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Advice -

Try­ing to cover a river from bank to bank usu­ally calls for longer casts that not only cause drag­ging flies, but cre­ate un­wanted dis­tur­bance and also make de­tect­ing takes vir­tu­ally im­pos­si­ble on run­ning water. A far bet­ter game plan is to break a river’s chan­nel into a se­ries of nar­row lanes (di­a­gram 2). By do­ing this, we can ef­fec­tively cover a given sec­tion, know­ing we’ve given it our full at­ten­tion. The idea is to work up each lane in­di­vid­u­ally, al­most like a blink­ered horse! Af­ter com­plet­ing your cho­sen lane it’s a case of climb­ing out of the water be­fore strolling down the bank to search your next grid­ded lane.
