Re: Casting Into Thin Air
Good post. Your observations make for a good read. I have not been lucky enough to have a fish take a fly in mid air. I have had occasions where I've dropped a fly delicately down to the water and had an immediate strike. It's always good to have a technique that you have confidence in. By all means if you find something that's effective, stick with it.
On the few occasions I've fished a furled leader, my impressions were that they REALLY excel for dry fly fishing due to the delicate landing. I think I don't fish them as much because I am usually nymphing until the fish start looking up. Maybe I need to rethink this.
