Words & Images By Riversmith Ambassador Eric Leininger
Every spring/early summer, I transition out of the bootfoot waders and spey rods to the single hand sticks and chasing the toothy critters. With that mind, I broke out the power boat and headed out. The season started off well feeding a few fish and landing one the first day out.
As the season progresses, the fish become smarter and adjusting your tactics is super necessary.
Flies - I tied a lot of them, and not all the same patterns. I found that just showing them something different can trigger a strike.
