Fly Fishing Tips
Stealth and Presentation
Stealth is a key component in successfully fish a small stream. A scared fish will not bite regardless of how good the presentation. Stay out of the water whenever possible, and cast from a kneeling or sitting position along the bank. Keep false casting to a minimum, if you must false cast, do it over land, and make the final cast to the watery target.
Water Temperatures
Tail waters have relatively uniform water temperatures through out the year. They almost never dry up or freeze completely. Uniform water temperatures means aquatic vegetation, and plenty of dry fly action all year!
Deep-Water Nymphing
When nymphing deep water, hold your rod high to keep excess line off the water and follow the downstream progress of the line with your rod tip, use heavy weights to slow the flies to the right speed.
