Two main Factors: fish location and angler position.
It is usually possible to see, how fishers
catch with the big lateral drift of a fly. Especially it is characteristic for
fishers with a two-hand rod and catching
on rather far distance. After cast downwards and across a current our fly is in uncontrollable drift, often it moves
with very great speed because of a pulling down of a line and leader by current. This technique is good for a spring
season when active fish stays on wide reaches.
But often the salmon does not want to
attack fly carried by leader, line and water flow in this manner.. Especially
often it happens during time of a
salmon run when fish moves upwards and
does not risk to be put out far of it parking. Then the fly should be stopped within
this parking area. Ability to find this places in the direction of fish run - to mean to find
the best place for a salmon.
Further is there are two variants. If you cast
well and can supervise fly presentation by up-stream mending - then you will provide its long work
within a drift out of best place with
the minimum lateral drift and leaving from a perspective zone.
If you have problems with a fly stop ( problems are at the majority of fishers
who want to cast far), it means it is necessary to change a position for
cast and to change cast techniques .
Here you see a wide pool up stream of waterfall cascade. But really Martin has very narrow
perspective stream alone waterfall edge across the river. So he need to cast with powerfull mend to put his line and tippet like a big curve to have a slow right - left side direction presentation according this main water steram aside of fallen tree.
You probably paid attention that the
majority salmon attacks at a traditional
manner occurs almost directly downstream of our position, during the moment
when the fly has stopped on the straightened line. Here now it is necessary to
repeat this situation specially. It can be made with the mending help when parking of a salmon is below you and a
little aside. If you have problems with control over a fly and with cast, means
it is necessary to take of a position directly above fish and to use short cast
in narrow sector downstream the river. Then you will not waste time on useless
drift of a line and leader+tippet, for the period of fly working out of a perspective zone and on following
preparation of a new cast. Now the fly occupies working position through one - two
seconds and long remains in a perspective zone. Casts are carried out in wet fly style, with the
minimum loss of time for gathering of a line and without any false casts . Statistically the gain in
time is huge, the fly leaves a
perspective zone only on one - two seconds at back cast.
Usually the best position for angler is a center of the river.
We already said somehow that the salmon attacks
fly directly after its falling on water. The technique
described by me allows to do without superfluous blows by a line on water and saves interest of fish to a fly during several casts. Therefore efficiency of
catching even an one-hand rod (with its rather small radius of action) surpasses often standard two-handed rod work.
As a result - our purpose - to stop a fly in a perspective zone --- - there will be a
correct presentation. For this purpose it is necessary to apply up-stream
mending or to take a correct position and to take narrow casting sector.
The role of fly thus considerably decreases that allows to
distract less on often difficult searches of a productive at this moment (hour
or day??) salmon fly.
My Nothern Autumn for low water level. Not enouph bushy for this autumn high water situation.
Ianus said- correct presentation only!
Best position and correct presentation by mending - nice fish more than ome meter long.
For anglers who fish new river - best position- is a key for correct presentation. Chavanga First wek of September.
