Fly Fishing Techniques: Coping With Rejection

New on MidCurrent: Paul Schullery writes about whether or not trout are really as lousy at the job of eating bugs as they seem to be. “If you’ve been fishing even a few years, you’ve watched a trout come up to your fly, give it a look, and turn away. That kind of rejection is discouraging, but at least it’s a nice, simple message from the trout: ‘I don’t like this.’ And at that point, you’re welcome to apply whatever combination of stream savvy, folklore, and science you can muster — to try a different fly, a different tippet, a different presentation, a different prayer, or a different fish.” Read “Coping with Rejection,” excerpted from Schullery’s new book, The Rise.
