Re: Sight fishing or blind fishing?
I hear you Kelly!!!!!
The reason I said no wrong answers, is that not all water is conducive to this approach, as you well know. And it's satisfying fun to hook up, no matter what style you choose to use.
That said, this is my jones too....
More than once "gentleman fishing" a friend has gone first, only managing to put our finny quarry down. After the appropriate break period (frosty beverage), it was my turn....
I feel like a car salesman, just laying them away!
Read the drift, get their rise timing down, and let fly.
To see a nose like a football suddenly poking out of the liquid chaos to eat your green drake, or Hopper, or whatever. Knowing it's a done deal, long before the fish does.
Especially fine, if you say "this drift".
Sorry... three months without running water brings out the fanatic.
"Standing in a stream fishing isn't reality avoidance,
more like a shortcut to reality."
