Fly-Fishing Techniques
Dry Fly, Dead Drift

Cast your dry fly well upstream of a rising fish and let it drift with the current. Usually, as the fly moves downstream it is necessary to strip in excess line to keep line slack at a minimum. When a fish rises to the fly, set the hook immediately, and keep tension on the fish throughout the fight.
