-18* sun morn, 36* today

great description of a low & slow set up by BLACK FRANCIS. a go to for water less than 41*

concerning the hang down, i was tutored to have an ample amount of line pinched in your drop loop. as the fly hangs a few seconds or however long desired, pop the rod tip subtley letting a few inches out with a fresh hang time alotted for each pop. good way to drop the fly downstream and hopefully back one up/get in his face.
