    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

  8. mistack4 (Caitlin 13), littletack4 (Kyle 11) and tack4 (myself) all went to jack's fishery 25 miles away sat pm from 3-7pm fish rising every where but not one of the 8 or so anglers could get them to take anything off the top... they were on the curse the canis jim an angler who has a caravan near the fishery was the first to land a decent fish on a green n yellow lure and had plenty follows and further success so the inevitable happend a time for tactic changes but thought i had nothing similar in my boxes tried a dog knobbler with no joy and found littletack4 gettin
