Presenting the Dry Fly
"Having now got within easy range of the rising fish, the angler's object is to drop the fly about two or three feet above him, so that it shall come down in a natural position, with its wings erect (or 'cocked,' as we call it). It should fall on the water quite lightly, and the least splash of the line is fatal, the fish in these waters apparently having eyes all over as well as in their heads. It is important that the fly should travel at precisely the same pace as other natural flies which are floating freely on the water, otherwise a ripple or drag is set up, and our fish will not look at a fly which has the slightest suspicion of drag.
