LATE & EARLY SEASON FISHING AT DEPUY'S SPRING CREEK (part 11)
Although up-stream Shotgun Nymphing will produce trout anywhere along DePuy's all through year, I usually carry one more type of "shotgun". It was because of infamous Southern or Southwestern winds in Paradise Valley. I again use the Middle Section of DePuy's as a case study for the "classroom of fly-fishing". The Middle Section flows like US Hwy 89 North-bound. So casting up-stream means one is facing and casting against winds. As a Livingston resident, I don't complain (or whine) over the winds. As an angler I can handle wind most of the time. One trick I apply all the time is to increase my casting-stroke, which is basically sending more power into my system (line-leader-flies) by adding extra speed and momentum to my regular casting form.
