Pre-Trip Practice

Casting! Practice distance, accuracy, and form in several different casts. (overhead, roll cast, sidearm, etc…)  Making good presentations will catch you more fish than having the “right” fly.

Spotting Fish!  Sometimes when you are off the water for awhile, seeing fish underwater can be  a challenge.  In order to spot them faster, grab your polarized glasses, head to some clear water in your area, and go fish hunting!  Bring a rod as well so you can practice sight casting!

Stealth! There are times that fish will become startled by loud wading, un-natural movement, shadows, etc.  In order to make sure that you get the most out of your guided trip, practice being stealthy in your approach.  Things to remember:  Stay low, wade softly, avoid quick movements, don’t cast your shadow on a fish, wear natural colored clothing.
