Upstream Techniques For Fishing Salmon Flies
Cast your salmon fly across the current and letting it swing normally. Keep tracking the salmon fly as it moves downstream slowly descending as it moves downstream. When the fly reaches the end of its arc keep the salmon fly fluttering for a few moments, this can often trigger bites.
Downsteam Method of Using Salmon Flies
An alternative method of fishing the salmon fly is by casting upstream and letting it sink. As the fly drifts downstream there is no drag from the flyline, the fly will sink more rapidly without drag. Using this method you can fish a lot deeper than on the upstream arc casting method. Please keep contact with the fly when fishing upstream as you need to be ready to set the hook if a fish should strike the fly on the almost slack line! Watch the leader for movement indicating a bite.
