Stillwater Fly Fishing: Wind Drifting

One of my enjoyable memories on many B.C. lakes is fishing up against the wind (or, rowing, kicking in bigger winds) and turning and letting the wind blow me back down a selected area. I have frequently had a damsel or dragon nymph dragging along with the speed of the wind. Whamo more often than not. More than up against the wind. Sometimes this is a gentle drift and other times you have a precise route to cover in heavier winds. Once a slot is covered, you pull out of the ride and work back up to the top and do it again.

SO LOOKING FORWARD TO SUMMER!

    Do you use a dry fly with droppers?

      Yes, I do but oddly more with stillwaters than the equally/better suited rivers. I don’t go too deep though. If I see porpoising or just below the surface, then a two fly rig is presented.
