Default Re: old guy problem - seeing #20 midge dries

I used to fish a lot around dusk/night, with small flies; very hard to see in the water and almost always on swiftwater streams.

I just managed my line very carefully, mended the heck out of it and made sure it's as straight as it could be between me and the fly.

Then I did as others have suggested, I watched the tip of the line for even the slightest pause or wiggle, then set.

Worked for me most of the time...........
