Let me know and ill be there.

So putting both of the last two posts together would equal = The trout didnt bite because my fly didn't look naturally occuring enough? I have been putting that xink on my flys. Also, i just read in another post somewhere i am suppose to have as little fly line out as possible? I have been laying out a ton of fly line and letting it run.

You're obsessed with Xink. Its nothing special. Its simply a way to make your fly saturated with water quicker, period, the end of discussion finis.

All line creates drag, and it doesn't take much (aka, "micro drag") to make the fish think, "not right" and skip your offering. Those epic drifts you thought you were doing sucked, and were preventing you from catching fish.

That knowledge won't stop you trying to perform epic drifts, though. I still do them, too.

Anyways, mending. You heard the term? Its how you chain together short drifts to make long drifts. By flipping the line in and out of current seams, it helps keep your fly in the zone.

There's also the short line concept, which is dragging hunks of lead with hooks in 'em across the bottom with barely any line out, and a direct, solid, connection from hand-to-rod-to-line-to-leaden-fly.

And Jdaddy is right, I am pretty.

Ok. Screw the xink. Ill use it on the kids in the pool when there acting up. LOL "epic drifts" thats exactly what is going through my head when im doing it. "If i let this line run out for a mile or so im bound to catch a fish" Ouch....i though mending was the manner in which you kept your line taught. Gotta read up on that. Still confused about drag/micro drag. Gotta read up on that one too. :( You can be pretty or you can be ugly but either way your pretty ugly.

Thats the presentation part which is probably the most important of all. Good luck watch others and practice.

I read up on mending the line and now i understand why....Dammit it's going to rain i wanted to practice this today. It makes perfect sense, the trout see my fly zipping by everything else in the water and know somethings wrong. I sort of killed two birds with one stone while reading up on mending. You mend to counteract the effects of drag.
