Dropping Flies on the Water Quietly



In fly-casting, delicacy to a certain degree is not difficult of attainment. Beyond that certain degree, with which no fly-caster should be satisfied, it is a matter of no little difficulty and requires years of stream experience and practice. When fishing the clear, shallow riffles of small streams the flies must drop on the water with the lightness of the proverbial thistle-down. If you fail in this you will see the trout in that vicinity disappear with uniform celerity. It is when casting a long line that the veteran fly-caster, by the ease with which he causes the flies to alight straight, delicately, and far-off, shows his title to the degree of Master of Angling. An equal degree of skill should be the goal of every fly-caster.

A rising motion of the rod just before the flies are about to alight will cause them to land quietly. This motion of the rod, however, must not be sudden or jerky, but must be graduated with nicety; otherwise the process simply results in "snapping the whip" and the flies will strike the water with even more than ordinary force. Another factor in casting for delicacy is to aim not at the exact spot on the water where the flies should alight but at a point in the air four or five feet above the spot. This will cause leader and flies to straighten out in the air, lose in a measure the propulsive force of the cast, and fall with all necessary delicacy.
