• A Simple Way To Identify and Catch The Big One in River!


    River dry fly fishing considered as the purest form of flyfishing inspired generations of writers, artists, poets andeven philosophers to wax lyrical about its pleasures.

    The gist to river dry fly fishing lies in the rise. Here, the angler waits patiently for a rise to begin beforehe or she starts to fish. And the art comes in persuading aparticular trout to take your artifical pattern among a hostof natural flies.

    Rise forms vary widely from hour-to hour and river-to river. From the way a trout breaks the surface (a rise), anexperienced angler can tell how and what thetrout feeds.

    The classic rise is when a series of concentric rings fanout on the surface as the trout confidently engulfs the flyas it drifts past.

    Trouts do not rise vertically in the water, instead theydrift back on the current to intercept the fly. The trout will then return to its station in thestream, usually inbetween weed beds on a shallow gravel run, under a bridge, overhanging tree or in a hatch pool, towait for the next free meal.

    Nebbing rise occurs when the trout pushes its nose right outof the water as heavy hatches of flies hover over its head.

    Splashy rise is a violent splashing which usuallyhappens in the evening when the trout are after mayfly orcaddis.

    Sipping rise happens when insects are trapped in the surfacefilm and usually leaves a bubble behind.

    Sub-surface rise causes all the problems as the rtout seemsto be rising to take a surface fly, bt it is really takingan emerging nymph. As it does so, it disturbs the watermaking it looks like a proper rise.

    Head and tail rise are usually seen in smooth stretches ofwater to nymphs trapped below the surface film where thewhole fish appears.

    The challenge comes in first identifying the fly that thetrout is taking, whether they are taking duns or spinners, or if they are nymping sub-surface.

    After selecting the correct fly, the next challenge comes inpersuading the trout to take it.

    The observant dry-fly angler learns by experience torecognize the different types of rise that commonly make. This will help him to select the correct fly and present itin a manner that the feeding fish will accept.

    Once a correct imitation fly to match those that the troutare taking is selected, get a position downstream and castat but not over the rising fish.

    Highlighted are the common rises, to net that 'big one',all you need is to match the correct fly to what the troutis looking for and cast your rod!

    Wishing you loads of catch!
