When I can't see it, I just follow something floating where I think my fly is and keep my eyes focused on the general area, not a particular spot. I set on any rise in the area. Sometimes I am right, sometimes wrong!
P.S. I am 69 and getting old doesn't suck! I can go fishing any time I want and can pick the best weather conditions and never have to fish on WEEKENDS!!!
FF...that's what I TRY to do and you're right. I'm 63 in Feb and getting old really doesn't suck. Poor health might be an issue, but not for me yet.
