Default Re: Small streams

Like Ard, I fish both directions. This is all dependent on the type of presentation that I am trying to acheive or the situation that I am in.

For dry flies, my presentation is mostly upstream. But if fish are actively rising within range of me downstream, I will not start stepping around to get downstream of them. I'll make a cast and control my drift as best as I can.

Streamers are fished in both directions. I will fish downstream for the swing. I will cast upstream, so I make an escaping baitfish presentation by doing fast strips.
