imitations on Bosnian rivers. Through the process of elimination
I decreased my fly selection to just two patterns in several
sizes and this is what is described in the article, along with
some historical stuff about GEM Skues. By Goran Grubic and Aleksandar Panic

number of fish you move to the fly. In fact, if you are like me,

to Scandinavian Casting

they have little back cast room? Also what way can anglers make long
casts without exerting a lot of energy and feeling exhausted after
three or four precious hours of fishing? Scandinavian spey casting
is the answer to both questions. By Randy Kadish (2015-04-06).
Fly Fishing with
Quiet Water boats
appeal to me in that these boats tend to be uncomplicated and
free of electronics or other gadgets I think distract from the
overall experience. By Mike Hogue 2013 (2014-01-12).
Grayling, the perfect
fish for fly fishing
On the third cast the big grayling
rose and took the dry fly. Then the fish took off down stream in full
speed. I had seen the cautious wake rings on the blank area at the
stream head - and like so many times in the past underestimated them in
the belief that they were from smaller graylings. By Sune Adolfsson

Spey Casting 101
Perhaps you’re in the same fly
casting bind I was in. You often don’t have enough room to make back
casts, and at your age casting a 7-weight fly rod for three or four
hours leaves you exhausted and sore. Spey casting, you read, will save
you a lot of energy and ibuprofen. By Randy Kadish

pound the Barramundi will outrun, outstrip and outfight any
salmonoid. (Part 1)

More Trout, Don't Flog the Water!
How many times have you spent the day at a
small stillwater fishery enjoying good sport during the morning, only
to struggle during the second half of the day? More often than not
this is due to trout shying away from an increasing bombardment of
flies and more importantly fly lines, but this need not be so. Article
