another tip is to float your flies under a strike indicator and use a hand twist retrieve. Used this method yesterday and I think my partner and I only foul hooked 3 out of around 20 hook ups.

By using the indicator it really enables you to see the difference between a fish taking your fly or just bumping into to it.

Plus it gives you some extra practice for chironmid fishing next spring.
