Re: Wade fishing question....
A lot of variables to your question. Depends on each situation. Most of the time I work upstream. Sometimes you look at a spot and have to ask what is my best casting angle for my fly to that spot? Certain flies you will fish differently. Do you wade to it, get out and walk around? Will you spook fish? Part of the fun of fly fishing is assessing your actions and seeing if you made good decisions. If not, was something learned? Good luck and get a wading staff for big waters and rocky bottoms.
