Takeaways from Marcus’s Video. Thanks Ashland Fly Shop!!!
(Swing by your feet first and work your way out)
Pace: 4 casual walking steps (big water pace) (clear water)
Murky water, (or colder water) less than three steps, working methodically
Slow down to one or two steps through the juicy parts of the run
Some Anglers try a slow swing by mending upstream and keeping the line straight in the juicy water after which they will try a sideways presentation. This may mean a downstream mend or no mend at all.
Do not park in one place all day! (although theoretically if the fish are moving this may work)your
Side Note. For water temps above 50 (f) I use floating lines and move fast if water is clearish. For water temps below 50 I prefer sink tips….Tim
In this video I’m pinned up against the bank, fishing the inside seam, moving through the run, looking for a player! I like to move!
