Default Re: Reading the Water

Im gonna tell you something that a guide told me one time. As soon as I heard this I started catching fish.
Ok, dont focus so much on your cast. The cast is not as nearly as important as what happens after that fly lands on the water. Ive seen guys that could lay out 100ft of line no problem, but they had not the slightest clue how to fish the cast! Dont worry about you casting just yet, itll come with time. Get to where you can cast 30ft and learn how to fish that cast. Also learning how to read the water is critical, learn to look for places you think a trout will be and fish it. Dont just look at the water, look into it! And remember to learn what to do while your line is in the water. Trust me, it goes alot smoother after that.
