A Simple Way To Identify and Catch The Big One in River!


River dry fly fishing considered as the purest form of fly fishing inspired generations of writers, artists, poets and even philosophers to wax lyrical about its pleasures.

The gist to river dry fly fishing lies in the rise. Here, the angler waits patiently for a rise to begin before he or she starts to fish. And the art comes in persuading a particular trout to take your artifical pattern among a host of natural flies.

Rise forms vary widely from hour-to hour and river-to river. From the way a trout breaks the surface (a rise), an experienced angler can tell how and what the trout feeds.

The classic rise is when a series of concentric rings fan out on the surface as the trout confidently engulfs the fly as it drifts past.

Trouts do not rise vertically in the water, instead they drift back on the current to intercept the fly. The trout will then return to its station in the stream, usually inbetween weed beds on a shallow gravel run, under a bridge, overhanging tree or in a hatch pool, to wait for the next free meal.

Other rises includes:

Nebbing rise occurs when the trout pushes its nose right out of the water as heavy hatches of flies hover over its head.

Splashy rise is a violent splashing which usually happens in the evening when the trout are after mayfly or caddis.

Sipping rise happens when insects are trapped in the surface film and usually leaves a bubble behind.

Sub-surface rise causes all the problems as the rtout seems to be rising to take a surface fly, bt it is really taking an emerging nymph. As it does so, it disturbs the water making it looks like a proper rise.

Head and tail rise are usually seen in smooth stretches of water to nymphs trapped below the surface film where the whole fish appears.

The challenge comes in first identifying the fly that the trout is taking, whether they are taking duns or spinners, or if they are nymping sub-surface.

After selecting the correct fly, the next challenge comes in persuading the trout to take it.

The observant dry-fly angler learns by experience to recognize the different types of rise that commonly make. This will help him to select the correct fly and present it in a manner that the feeding fish will accept.

Once a correct imitation fly to match those that the trout are taking is selected, get a position downstream and cast at but not over the rising fish.

Highlighted are the common rises, to net that 'big one', all you need is to match the correct fly to what the trout is looking for and cast your rod!
