Fly Fishing near our Cabins in Helen
Once the basic up and downstream approach is understood they can be divided into four main styles of fly fishing in Helen, these are the:
Across and down - or downstream method associated with the wet fly but also used dry, this involves casting at about 45 degrees across and allowing the fly to fish around and downstream. With the wet fly this suits broken and/or clear water.
Upstream – by presenting the fly upstream and giving the fly motion with the line. This suits spate water in less broken sections of the stream.
Upstream wet – the fly cast upstream on a greased line and allowed to return under the surface. Suited to the slower sections of the stream
Upstream dry - or more typically cast upstream and across and allowed to drift down. Often used by the chalkstream fisherman to present the fly naturally drifting into the trout’s field of vision.
Many stream have runs, riffles, rocks and other features and the effect of these should be imagined by the angler in connection with the currents and where to fish and with what type of fly. In a clear stream the angler may work upstream casting to the nearside and then further out at the next cast. He may start below a pool and cast just above to the tail of the pool allowing the fly to drift back into the tail of the pool. Then he may work the fly further out on a slightly longer cast. Next he may move further upstream, all the while assessing the holding areas. As you come to a deeper pool you may wish to tie on a heavier fly, perhaps fishing two flies with a lighter fly on the dropper. Further upstream may be a long area of rapids and you may chose to fish this downstream or up and across by judging the current. Clearly very fast waters are almost impossible to fish upstream properly.
Trout will move into rapid water in sustained hot conditions. It is important here to consider where the fish will lie amongst the rocks, to consider the depth and to fish the right fly close to the fish. In shallower water a heavier fly is not as important as in water say over 3 feet deep. Moving downstream the angler will judge the lies and his approach, fishing either across or down and mending line where necessary. Try casting to allow your fly to work around and behind boulders then cast to allow it to be presented in front of boulders, perhaps with a caddis or stonefly imitation. Looking at the white water areas of the rapids search out calmer spots in the water surface, these often hold trout.
Wet fly in eddy pools
Watch the eddy and notice how the current goes back on itself, this means that trout will face into the current and therefore can face downstream in parts of the eddy. The pool will be aerated by the rapid water entering the eddy and the foam on the surface and the overhanging bank that often lies close by, will act as cover for the fish. Such conditions collect food. A pool like this can hold fish of all sizes, although during the day the bigger fish will lie deep.
