Being pushed to the surface by a 3 footer.

Dream big!

Good read Flickndip

Great question. Many fish jump, in recent years even great white sharks have been observed 'catching air' while hunting seals from the bottom. Dolphins do it to 1) breathe and 2) as a social and communicative behavior (unless trained, then it's simply to impress humans
I had a rather large brown jump really close to me at the river, startled me it was so loud and so close and it was clear he was coming up to check out my suspension device dangling in some rougher water.

My hypothesis would be that larger fish leave the water while predating smaller prey; and smaller fish leave the water while being predated on by larger fish. Haha

JerryG: Haha. That's a good one.

splatek16: It may make sense that they're going after something and something close to the surface and possibly fast moving... since they have to be so aggressive as to jump out of the water and make themselves so vulnerable. I am just wondering what it is they're after so that next time I see them jump out like that, I can switch up the rig to increase my chances.

If you start seeing this behavior, I will typically switch to a dry dropper rig with either a trailing midge, emerged or soft hackle. Another way to fish for them would be to use an indicator about 1-2 feet above your first fly On a 2 flag rig. I like to use a wool indicator if I fish this way.
