Default Re: Fishing Pocket Water

That is a great video. The only exception I take is his comments about not wasting your time casting to non feeding fish in pocket water. Dorsey is notorious for being an expert trout spotter....I've seen him on some fly shows and he sees fish even other acclaimed fisherman can't see. I personally have enough difficulty trying to spot fish in quiet pools.....I have never really been able to spot fish in heavy pocket water....much less distinguish whether they were feeding or non feeding. My advice to a newbie....learn to identify the actual prime lies (ie: the slow pocketwater next to the fast water) and methodically fish them all. If a fish is there....even if "non feeding"...your nymph properly presented will turn him into a feeding fish
