Fishing Report: Feb. 6, 2016

I’m Nate Raymond from Fish Tech Outfitters. When you are out there on the river, there is a lot of things you need to change, a lot of variables. First is going to be our fly. When we are looking a fly that is on the river and we are trying to match it. We want to be really close on the fly size and if not a little bit smaller for those selective trout. The next thing we want to look at is the flies shape. The last thing we’ll look at is color. The next thing we look at on the river is the location we are throwing our fly to. A good place to throw flies is in differences in currents. Those places we call seams, behind boulders in riffles and pools. The last thing we want to change is our presentation. When fishing nymphs and dry flies, it’s important to have what we call a ‘drag free drift’. This means that your flies are moving at the same speed as the water around them. And the same speed means the same speed as the natural flies in the river. This will indicate to the fish, that your fly is safe to eat. So just remember, if you are sitting out on the river wondering what you are doing wrong. It probably has something to do with your fly, your location or your presentation. Get all three of those things right and you’ll be catching fish over and over. If you have any questions on the way you can improve your presentation, location or fly selection, come on down to Fish Tech and we’ll help you out. Now for tonight’s fishing line.
