Default Re: Upstream or down

I've fished both up AND down for several years each. Produced way, way, way more fish fishing heading down stream. Have to be a better caster & controller of line in my opinion, but even a beginner LIKE my 10 year old can work downstream with success (now 13) KEY, need to have more distance between you & the fish going downstream.

Oldly, started out trout fishing at about age 8-9 by sending my flies down stream on very long drifts & caught fish this way, was an accident tHAT I discovered this AS nobody taught me anything. Decided after years of success to try heading up stream AFTER purchasing a fly fishing tape, pre internet forum days. Caught some fish with this tactic, but switched back to mostly downstream for the last several years now again. Much better...
