When it comes to reading water, the fly fisher who is observant of details will be rewarded.
This way of angling doesn’t mean casting your fly to every square inch of the creek. It entails reading the water at a level that goes beyond riffle, run, pool. Slow down. Think and assess. Don’t just fish the holding water that usually has a trout or two.
There are plenty of fish that aren’t where you usually look. You just need to realize they are there.
