snap t

I like a snap t with a twist in Juro's river left ,upstream wind situation..the twist is a sidearm delivery when the wind is hard.the sidearm aspect makes evrything rollout and turnover parallel to the water surface.your leader and fly will flip around and land downstream of your line and be ready to fish without a mend.whereas, with the more normal delivery the hard wind will mostly blow the big fly and leader upriver of your line and this will require a hard messy mend.to me it is easier to do the sidearm than with a single.also easier to laydown the 2nd cast move of the snap T in a tough wind consistently.BEAU
