    Dry fly takes

    hi, what size shipmans was it? dry takes can be very frustrating!!!!!!!!!!!!!! opinions differ on when, how hard to "lift" dont strike as such slow figure 8 will keep you in contact for a while i used to slowly move rod tip to either right or left (wind depending) on slow figure eight if a bow develops to right i move rod to left to "lift" "strike" set hook and if bow to left move rod tip right......... trial and error the smaller the fly the quicker it can spit it out
