Wet Fly Fishing on Rivers The key to successful wet fly fishing is letting the flies 'dead drift'. In this DVD I show you the three key techniques. The 'across' method - I find this technique particularly effective on crinkly, near flat glides, when fish are looking up, eagerly knocking off duns and emergers. 'The Escalator' A technique that I have developed over the years but is an easy style to master, increases your search area and imparts a lift to the flies as the drift fishes out. And the 'upstream' style of wet fly fishing. I love this short line upstream style, it has a high work rate and requires complete focus. However, the flies fish naturally, in a dead drift. So if you want to up your catch rate, stop facing downstream!
