Fishing Slack Water and Pools

The cast should be made lightly and the flies allowed to remain for a moment where they alight and then withdrawn a little and quietly. Over pools and still-waters it is best not to allow them to remain in one spot too long; that is, they should not be dragged any considerable distance from the point where they first fell. It is better to cast frequently, relying upon repeated casts to cover the pool thoroughly.

A very important thing is to be careful always about the first cast you make over any likely spot. The tendency, even with experienced fly-casters is to make this first cast rather carelessly and as a sort of experiment. Consequently a good fish is often raised and lost on account of the angler's not being ready for him. As a general thing—every fly-fishing rule has its numerous exceptions—a trout that is in a rising mood will come for the first or second cast, and it is rather more apt to come for the first than the second. In view of this always make the first cast over any new place fully prepared for trouble. If the trout rises when you are only at half-attention and is missed, or is pricked and lost, the chances are numerous that you have seen the last of him—a pricked trout never comes to the fly again.

Another thing—before you cast over any difficult place where the current is very swift, or the banks rocky and steep, or the water too deep, always look over the situation and make up your mind just where is the best place to land a fish under the circumstances and how one may best be handled; then pick your place to cast from accordingly. Then when you strike a good-sized trout you will not be rattled about what to do next but will be ready to go right after him. If you are unprepared and merely hang on to the fish while you are trying to decide what to do with him the chances are that he will tear away or foul you before you can make up your mind. Often you will see anglers casting from places where it would be simply impossible for them to save a trout if one were hooked.
