I AM OFFERING A LATE SUMMER SPECIAL!!! When you call to book any two days through the end of SEPTEMBER, I am giving 50% off the second day. If you book any day in OCTOBER I am giving a $70 discount on that day. Please keep in mind this does not apply to days that are already on the books; however, the discount would be applied if you add an extra day to the existing trip. There are a good number of days available in August and September. If you are an October angler, you know that month books up fast so get your dates confirmed with me while you can.
TIP OF THE DAY
Every year I see guys fishing a dry until they have pounded the water to death with very little success. Sometimes, it is something as simple as (and you have all heard me say this before) just ‘paying attention’. Take a close look at the fish that you are fishing to. Is he really eating a dry, or is he feeding so close to the surface that he is breaking the water? Start by tying the nymph to the dry that you are fishing, and swing it on a long leader in front of the fish. Look to make sure that when you see the fish feeding you can see his mouth or head. Otherwise, is it a smutting rise. This could be the difference between spooking the fish and catching him. Watch him…don’t just keep casting to him every time you see him. Give the fish a break – watch for a pattern to the fish rising, and if so, try to take advantage of it. By all means, give him a little room – this will allow you to determine if you need to cast just one foot in front of him or if you need to lead him by five to ten fee. The two most common mistakes I see anglers make when fishing dry is casting too close to the fish(letting the line pound down on his head) and casting so far above him that everyone falls asleep before the fly gets there! If you want to learn more about this just give me a call and we can work it out.
