One of the basic characteristics of a successful angler, regardless of the method, is the ability to solve problems; what lure to use and how to use it. Fly anglers are faced with many problems that are not encountered by anglers using other methods of fishing. This is basic to the sport of fly fishing where the angler has a choice of presenting their offering to the fish either on the surface, in the surface film, just below the surface and anywhere from just below the surface to right on the bottom. How we approach this aspect of fly fishing will ultimate determine how successful we are in catching fish under a variety of situations.
