There are several factors going on in this type of presentation and working the fly this way maximizes the amount that come in to play. Thus; increasing the strike rate. I will try and elaborate on this when I get more time; maybe this evening.

Keep them coming

I have found that the fish on the Clinch do not spook the way most people think. If you get a chance; look at some of my other videos on YouTube. I have about 50 hours of underwater video that I have recorded this year on the river and I put up a few on YouTube. The videos have been very helpful to me in targeting trout.

As you can see; most of my techniques and ideas or non-traditional. If you research some of my posts and topics; you will see that there are many people that are not believers or discredit my ideas. I understand their perspective and I do not mind their input. It helps me to self-critic my ideas so that I am fully aware of what truly is going on.

Maybe if I just post a video of the idea in the future; it should help to support it...
