What Is, And What Is Not....
There have been numerous articles written about the "technical" aspect of fly fishing. I usually don't read them for the reason I don't have much need to. I'm sure one can say they are required to use some form of technical fishing when they are in waters with high angling pressure. But there is also the fact that a trout eats when it's necessary. They eat for survival, if there is a large caddis hatch they will feed heavily on them which makes perfect sense, not to technical...but say there is no hatch going on do they stop eating or do they find something else to consume? Again the answer is not technical, they will find something else.
A section of small stream. There are trout in here at times and they are feeding. Looking at the section and trying to figure out where trout are, again not technical. Your options are, fish the right, center or left. Doing this your probably going to hook-up.
This brookie was taken from the left side within the shady part of the stream.
Pizzelle and Espresso...not very technical but very delicious.
Now as to the pocket knife....it's meaning is the buck stops here when it comes to technical fly fishing.
