    Default Straight up/nev2l8

    I like a straight upstream cast,but since it lines the fish,I start close and increase distance in increments of 1 leader length.Know what you mean by close takes.Got into a hatch on the Gunnison and had trout taking olives 'tween the knees!

    When you are saying 'side roll cast,' is there a chance you're doing something like a Snake Roll? Here's a photo of what I am talking about:



    Snake roll casts are great for picking up line at the end of a drift and shooting it 90 degrees from your position (i.e. back to the top of a run). You can do it all in one motion without having to work your way around the clock face with backcasts.

    Zach-simliar but it's for getting back to fishing downstream.I can see how the 'SNAKE' would work and will try it-Thanks.
