Downstream

Downstream

The downstream presentation is useful for calm spring creek and tail water streams. The fly is presented to the fish first without any disturbances from the leader or line. When the casting planes are made away from the fishs location, the fish are undisturbed by overhead false casting and line spray. Many times fish are wary of overhead motions which may simulate birds of prey. Additionally, the downstream presentation is simple and effective; perhaps its only disadvantage is that the fly needs to be accurately cast.
