Thread: Spoiled by drys

  1. Default Spoiled by drys

    Anyone else getting spoiled by dry fly fishing? I just love to see the fish take my offering off the top.
    Nymphing, even sight nymphing, just isn't the same since the fish have been looking up. I know that 90 percent of the fishes diet is subsurface and if you want to catch fish that's the way to go, but there is so much more excitement in seeing that splash.
    For me it's as much about being on the river enjoying the whole experience as it is catching fish.

    You got that right! Not sure I would have bothered switching to trout fishing just to fish nymphs. Surface hits on dries are what keeps bringing me back.
    On the whole, I'd rather be in Wyoming . . .

    I'm spoiled too on drys. Even with no hatch on, I'll still try to bring them up with a dry. I'm stubborn that way but normally can agitate them enough to come up and take one, (normally but not always). It is exciting waiting and watching for that splash and feel the tug and 'fish on!' Nothing like it!!
    "I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...because only in the woods can I find solitude without lonliness..." Robert Traver 1964 (Judge John Voelker)
