When fish don't strike, chances are it's not your fly or your casting, it's your leader.
When flyfishing in tight spaces, use the steeple cast technique for an accurate presentation
Q:ok so im up here in new York now, very new to the area and I got my sights aimed on the salmon river. I wanna fly fish it and have a lot of questions. ive been to the DNR website and got some good info but I always figure I should ask the crowd. from what I understand the steelhead run starts tomorrow. I have some streamers and stuff but not much with me yet. what should I pitch out there? what leader? what tippet?
