As the name indicates dry flies which include Dark Cahill are designed to float on the surface of the water. Trout dry flies types which include Dark Cahill imitate a wide variery of flies and insects which inhabit the surface of the water. There is nothing like using dry flies and watching trout and grayling rise to the surface. To purists dry fly fishing is the true art-form of fly fishing, indeed some rivers only permit dry fly fishing. There are some dry flies (e.g. the Popper, Muddlers) which are designed to attract fish by the action of creating a surface disturbance. The flies are made from very bouyant materials (e.g, cork, ethafoam or deer hair, the latter having a generous application of floatant). A Muddler retrieved upwind of a rise can often result in a bulge in the water as the fish follows the fly.
Dry Fly Fishing Techniques With The Dark Cahill
A dry fly like Dark Cahill has flotant (Gink is the most popular) warmed in your hand and gently rubbed into the hackles to help Dark Cahill float and they are usually cast singly on a trout tapered leader. A floating line is used, but with the tapered leader de-greased so that it does not glint and flash light spooking the trout
