Fishing With Hackled Dry Flies

Simply use a tapered leader with a floating line and cast your fly. Be careful to mend the line to avoid the current dragging the fly, it needs to look natural as it drifts to any nearby trout and grayling. If the line drags then a simple flick of the line upstream so that the line and leader do not drag, this is normally sufficient to stop the drag and make sure it is presented naturally.
