Line for Fishing Dry Flies

"When a feeding fish is seen, the angler's object is to get as near to him from below as possible without scaring the fish. This necessitates a good deal of progression after the manner of the serpent, it being essential above all things to keep low. The fly chosen should be as near as possible a reproduction of the natural insect on the water. The line, which is of plaited silk, dressed in linseed oil under the air pump, is carefully greased, preferably with red deer fat, but Vaseline or hard mutton suet answers equally well. The object of greasing the line is to insure that it shall float lightly on the surface of the water. If not greased —no matter how well it may be dressed—it soon tends to be waterlogged, and in this condition sinks below the surface of the water when drawn in, dragging the fly with it under the water and thus soaking the latter.

"The line we use here is generally fairly heavy and preferably tapers to a fine point. Only one fly is used in this style of fishing. The fly itself is lightly touched with a spot of odorless paraffin from the small bottle which is carried on one's waistcoat button. After anointing the fly with paraffin, I find it well to absorb the excess paraffin on a dry handkerchief; then by making a few false casts in the air the fly is further dried, and nothing but a minute suspicion of paraffin remains on the fly; otherwise any excess of the paraffin forms a film on the water, which is distinctly and detrimentally visible to the fish.
