New Fly Fishing Strategies - What Fly To Use Series - Part 16
This is a continuation of a new weekly article series that is planned for at least for a
year. I want to remind you that the following paragraph is important.


The Best Advise I Can Offer:
Rather than being a trial and error, mediocre angler that basically relies on luck, you
can greatly improve your odds of success
by imitating what the trout are focusing
on eating. Don't think they are stupid creatures that always just sit in one place in the
stream eating any and everything they see to eat. That simply doesn't happen. They
are well aware of what's in the stream to eat even more so than your probably aware
of what's in your refrigerator to eat. They live in the refrigerator so to speak. They see
it each and every day of their life. Imitating what the trout are focusing on
doesn't
mean just tying on the right fly.
It also means knowing how, when and exactly
where to do it.

You will find that the tougher the conditions get and the more difficult the trout
become to catch, doing this will give you a huge advantage over those that want to
blame water levels, temperature, season, etc. In essence they just call the fishing
poor rather than accept the fact that the poor success is due to their own lack of
knowledge and skills.

Here's a word of caution. You can get all kinds of advise from people who are only
interested in selling fly fishing product/. There are those who are willing to offer their
advise on a regular basis on how to fish, what flies to use, etc, but who actually almost
never fish the park for trout.
Some of this worthless advise comes from people
who don't fish the streams of the Park twice a year, if that much
. There are
phonies in the fly fishing business.

I'm leaving today's article short, hoping it will create more attention and consideration.
I will continue the strategy series article tomorrow. We will be going into a change in
the weather and stream conditions and this will also make it more meaningful for this
coming weekend.
