Down-Sun or Up-Sun?

Somehow the advice of an angler who earned money for his first fly fishing outfit by ferreting (catching rabbits with a ferret) carries more import. Welsh angler Moc Morgan recounts observations made while practicing for the world championships in Poland, where he had a chance to watch teams from various nations fish to the same trout. Turns out fishing down-sun wasn’t making the difference, but fishing the “blur area” was. “I watched closely and realised the fish were only taking flies in one particular section of the river and I remembered reading once of something called ‘the blur area’ – that is the area between maximum glare and clear vision.” From IcWales.
