Saltwater Fly Fishing: "Advanced Placement"
In saltwater, presentation — placing the fly in just the right spot based on the movement and behavior of fish — is ninety percent of the game. Mudding and actively feeding fish react entirely differently than “laid-up” fish. Fish that are in six inches of gin-clear current require more careful presentations than those blinded by silt or wind.
This week on MidCurrent Chico Fernandez offers some great pointers on deciding where and when to cast your fly in saltwater. As he says in “Advanced Placement,” it’s all about anticipation and not being afraid to commit to your cast.
