Current Flow State: How Fly Fishing Explains the World |||

Intro to Fly Fishing: Voracious browns

We talk in class about different types of trout feeding behavior: on the surface, or subsurface. We talk about food, whether that’s insects, other fish, or whatever falls into the prey role that day.

Here are two examples of videos depicting the most visible and dramatic types of eats you’ll get: brown trout going after streamers.

Typically this is pre-spawn behavior, in the fall, where male browns come to full sexual maturity and develop their trademark kype, or hooked jaw, and a deep yellow color.

The technique is tried and true: cover a lot of water with big streamers splashed down and stripped quickly through target areas.

Still, watching the fish pursue the fly never gets old.
