Default Re: Leader Options for Technical Dry Fly Presentations

Left field.......its not easy - that is for sure. I've gotten into the habit of starting to beach (ie: leading the dog to shore) some of the bigger ones (when possible.) Also.....having a friend assist when possible doesn't hurt either. That being said....outstretched arms are definitely in play. An frankly....many times I lose them. Such was the case during the Hendrickson hatch this year....even with a friend doing the netting I (we) lost my biggest fish of the season. If you are questioning my leader length as being too long.....I would simply query back "how do you even hook into a big Delaware Brown in the first place using a short leader" ?? Unless you are fishing fast broken water....or night fishing?
