Tom Rosenbauer On Multi-Fly Rigs

Tom Rosenbauer discusses his favorite techniques for using multi-fly rigs to catch trout.

Excerpt: “This is a new craze that is actually an old craze. Back in the nineteenth century, people used only wet flies on multi-fly rigs. They would use as many as fifteen flies on a leader, and they would throw this what they called ‘cast’ of flies out there and let them swing in the current. Some of the flies would swing under the surface of the water, and some would sort of dap just under the surface of the water. So they were imitating emerging flies and flies skimming across the surface. It was quite effective, but I don’t think any of us what to deal with fifteen flies on a leader.”
