Interesting question, the term doesn't register with me either. How was it used/context?

Default Re: Can someone explain "high banking"

I am far removed from the contemporary terminology of fly fishing / fishing lingo but I'll still take a guess. High Banking sounds like a good name for the practice of taking to the 'cut bank' and using it as an observation point for spotting fish. On all but the most passive river systems there are point bars and cut banks at every turn of the channel. The cut or high bank usually extends far beyond the said turn and this will offer high ground for the purpose of sneak & peek spotting.

Don't know the term either ....But looks like Ard's explaination is a good one.I would say it's spotting fish from a higher place on the bank before fishing or to help a friend who's wading...I sometimes do that with friends,that's what we call "satellite guiding" and it works.If it's only fishing from a high bank I know someone who can do that very well...have a look herehttp://www.theflyfishingforum.com/fo...-friends2.html

Only thing that comes to mind is gold prospecting. It could be a referance as to why water clarity might be off or something to that effect. Or if you high bank a fish it means basically they saw you before you knew they were there, meaning either when approaching or casting to fish stay low and out of sight as best you can.

So this is the quote from the guide who gave the report, hopefully using it in context will help.

"These are 100% wild trout, a lot of anglers are opting for camouflage and there is no need to high bank the fish"

I have never heard the term before. Maybe it's like this, but from a high bank instead of the helicopter.
Just kidding..... maybe.
