Don't let that distract you though, just keep at it. Learning to read a stream comes with experience and a lot of time on the water. Next time you are out, first try fishing the tail of every run for a few drifts. You might be spooking fish holding there without realizing it and then you are getting denied for the rest of that stretch. After you do that, then try to get your fly right on that edge between the fast water and the slower water. For lack of better description, you want your fly in the middle. Not out in the fast water sweeping by in a NY minute and not at a dead stop in the slow water. And just to confuse you even more, you still want to fish those sections but I just looked at the clock and our hour is up, so I will cover that next session...

Seriously, just try that for a while and be mindful of your drift and keeping it drag free. I would tie on a #12 Adams or Yellow Sallie and go to town...

Tight Lines,

Sorry but that is just too funny...
William, just make sure you hurry up and book him before 5wt. does. It seems he has BRF's attention as well...
