Default Re: Wade fishing question....

Rule of thumb for me in general is... Dead drift presentation (ie. nymphs, dries) fish upstream. Fan the water above you to cover it well paying particular attention to likely water. Opposite for streamers, work downstream and across. One of THE biggest mistakes beginners make is neglecting to realize how tight fish will hold to the bank. Dont just wade out and start casting, you could be wading right thru the best water.
