Fly Fishing Tip of the week:

I often see anglers false casting three, four, five or more times before allowing the line to fling itself to its destination in search of a wary trout. What for? If it's a dry fly, its dry after one or two...if it's a nymph, ? Over false-casting wears on your shoulder, the knots, and the fly itself, plus, all that 'stick wavin' scares the bejezus out of trout, especially in very clear water. Limit your false casts to only what is necessary. Another tip is to false cast to the side, not over the fish. Stealth, my brother, is the key.
...they call it fishing, not catching for a reason...
