Sneaky.


The crouch. The sneak. Staying low, moving slow. Using cover to your advantage. False casts away from the target. Paying attention to your relationship with the sun and the shadows that develop. Olive colored lines standard. Stealth camo clothes? Don't scoff. Talk to a Kiwi about camo sometime. Or a whitetail bow hunter for that matter.

This fly fishing gig should be treated as hunting. The approach can make or break the game. Thoughtful approaches equal opportunities.

  1. Some good advice there Todd, it never ceases to amaze me to see anglers who should know better show up streamside with bright orange and red hats, shirts, and jackets !

  2. I hate it when a client shows up with a long sleeved white shirt. It's like having an Osprey in the bow of the boat.
