Wet Fly Swung, Near Surface or Deep
Wet Fly, Swung Near Surface
Cast your wet fly across the river and slightly downstream,
then let the current "swing" the fly until hanging directly
downstream. Take a couple of steps downstream between each
swing, thereby covering all of the water where fish could be
Wet Fly, Swung Deep
Using the same "swinging" technique described above, add
heavier flies and/or sinking lines to get your fly as
deep as is necessary to find fish.
