Re: A Little Help Please?
Len, good to find you here. What I would do is use a slow-water/slack-water indicator method I use on my favorite spring creek - water very similar to what you show. It consists of a Parasol Emerger fly, trailed by a bead-head nymph to get the fly down to the fish's depth and then trail an unweighted imitation of prevalent bugs about 18-inches behind that fly. All dropper flies are tied in at the hook bend.
Do a soft curve-cast or reach-mend and drop that rig upstream of the fish and drift it through the lie. Works for me more often than not. The Parasol fly is very subtle and does not seem to spook the fish and works well as an indicator.
Here's what the Parasol Emerger looks like:
And here's a look at the setup:
Anyway, just my thoughts on your conundrum.
I fish, therefore I am - but I gotta go to work first..."piscari ergo sum"
