When fishing in the running water, and a good throw wiring fly without the furrows caused by the influence of the flow on the line and the leash is difficult to make. I want to give some tips for catching fly, allowing fighting against this phenomenon. This special technique of casting, and the appropriate accessories, and various kinds of adjustment of fishing methods. One of the easiest ways to deal with groove on the fly is cast downstream.
Casting flies downstream gives you several advantages. Firstly, you do not risk scaring the fish strike the cord of water. Secondly the first movement downstream begins to fly it, that positive impact on the fight against groove. Thirdly, the position of the fly on the water can be adjusted, casting becomes more accurate.
When casting downstream or down and across, I prefer to use the technique, which in our area is called Reach Mends, Reach Up or Parachute Mend, although it has other names.
To master the technique of casting is pretty simple, and it can help solve a number of complex issues fly presentation. Here’s how it happens. Make such a movement rod, which you do at a throw over his head. Issue with the cord to such a length that it was enough not only to get to the place of the alleged finding fish, but also to fly could have drifted a few feet below the place.
Stop at the end of the rod forward. Just at the moment when the cord is untwisted in the air. Then gently pull the rod to her. Thus, the rod bent backward and upward. That is, you need to make the same movement as when throwing the cord back on the cast over his head. Only it runs slower. At the moment of the contact surface of the water column, it should hang freely from the end of the rod. This fly should fall into the water a few feet above the location of the fish.
To “deliver” a fly in the desired position, lower the rod tip. Bleed line into the water flow at the same rate at which it takes the thread. If the fish refuses the offered food, let gunpoint to sail past the fish. Then Drag the fly, having its side of the parking lot of fish. Make one more throw and repeat the process.
The beauty of this technique is to make an accurate throw; you do not need to be an experienced fisherman fly fishing. With one line corresponding to the elements snap to the time when the fly and the leash cord still above the proposed parking lot of fish. You can achieve almost ideal fly posting. This adjustment technique also allows you to throw a fly in remote places.
For example, in places located upstream from the rubble. And just where the river makes a turn. An important is the fact that with this casting is a fly touches the water first. Once you have mastered this technique, you can adjust the point of touching the water front sight (and, consequently, further and it’s wiring) for as long as the cord will still be in the air. Thus, you can count on the fact that the fly will not surf, do not go under the water and will pick up any debris.
With this corrective movement on the rod should consider some important points. Quite often, in order to throw the fly in the right place, the fisherman has to get up directly over the fish (upstream and pretty close to the fish).
This location angler fly fishing is not ideal and can scare the fish. It just feels his presence. If you are in relation to the fish will stand upstream and obliquely, and will make a throw to the side, making thus a corrective movement of the rod, you will get a certain freedom of action.
Because the fish will go up the river, before hooking it will be necessary to make sure that the fish like to be sat on the hook. My words may seem like a truism, but in order that the above-described corrective movement reaches Up helps you during your fishing’s. You should use this technique directly during fishing.
The excitement is very easy to forget about some new technique mastered the element. At such moments, better to stop for a moment, relax, think, and then make the best throw of his life.
Once, when I lived in Los Angeles, I went on a fishing trip to central California ranch Hot Creek, where fishing is practiced only on a dry fly. Waters looked great, but on the surface it was a lot of algae and therefore small currents that are just crazy.
Ranch worker, watching the procedure on the river, took me to the site, located downstream, and quickly instructed. Then I walked along the river and studied the situation carefully. Soon I found a flock of fish feed on the surface. Casting up was not possible with the current. In such a situation the most appropriate was cast downstream and diagonally.
Using the slack cord, which gives equipment Reach-Up (pulling the rod), I scored just fly wherever needed. It was a little fly Foam Beetle. Fish pecked without hesitation. It was a pleasant conclusion of a long day spent on the water body.
In addition to using the appropriate casting technique, to repay the reserves front sight groove helps correct accessories. The most important role is played here by the undergrowth, although the importance of this element is often underestimated.
Simple blanking furrow undergrowth cord number 4 as follows: 4 feet (1 m 22 cm) diameter 0.5 mm; 1 foot (30.5 cm) diameter 0.33 mm; 1 foot (30.5) with a diameter of 0.25 mm (IX); 2 feet (61 cm) diameter 0.18 mm (4X); 2 feet (61 cm) diameter 0.15 mm (5X). This undergrowth is a repetition of the design under the name Uni-Body, which came up with my father.
She, in turn, is a simplified version of the original type of noodle leash, which start in life gave George Harvy. Note, too, that the lead consists of several components. What you have as a firm basis to be 2 feet (61 cm) 4X, allow you to control the fly during the cast. At the same time it will not interfere with easy and free to move downstream.
Experiment snap and you’ll see what suits best for you. Make a casting downstream blanking furrow, not too difficult, but it may be just the reception, which will bring you success in fly fishing.
