Hooch Deep Water Strategies
Posted by Mountain Man on August 19, 1998 at 13:26:26:
First, let me say thanks to all the great advice & information I've picked up on the board. As a first year fly fisherman (but I've gone over 20 times this year already!), I haven't had much to contribute but hopefully that will change with more experience.
I've been fishing some of the shoals around the island at Jones Bridge but am interested in trying the deeper water just below. Any advice on how to approach this deeper, slower water? Fishing technique? Flies? Leader length? Etc.? Is this type of water generally more productive than the shoals or am I just getting the top of my waders wet for nothing?
Thanks in advance for the help!
