    Re: Help with fishing Dry Flies

    This sounds like late refusals to me especially with small flies like the size 20 you were fishing. I will explain why later in my post.

    When a fish changes its mind on the way up, it just closes...

    Re: Spring Trout Fishing in Socal

    For the beginners who are reading this:

    For these types of freestone stream, the key is reading water and stealth.

    Re: Help with recreating my lucky fly

    About the suggested colors of the fly especially the body. I don't think orange would be the right color.

    The reason is that we all know that when a fly gets wet, the colors look darker. Less...

    Re: Trapping hackle on whip finish?

    You should not cut the tips of the hackle down. Better to be too long than clipped.

    When you buy hackle, buy it with a purpose and not by mail order. I never buy hackle mailorder. It is one of the...

    Re: Trapping hackle on whip finish?

    Hi LimerickShaw,

    In my opinion, there are three things you could do to improve your fly below.

    1. As to your question, you have wrapped the hackle too close to the hook eye. You need to leave...

    Re: Help with recreating my lucky fly

    Post a photo of the fly when it is dry.

    The hackle looks oversized, ie, longer than standard for a bugger of that length. So I'd like to see if that is real once the hackle is not wet and...

    I think it all gets back to being able to cast a rod before buying a rod PLUS the test casting simulating how you are going to cast the rod when fishing.

    If I were to guess, I think you may have been looking at your backcast.

    Looking at the backcast forces you to rotate your head to the side of your casting arm as you look back. This cause you to...

    A video of you casting is what is needed to see what is going on.

    I don't think holding the line tightly in your non casting left hand is the problem.
