Upstream Bombers (bubble gum or White)

I think the white one is a good choice for that river. I would also go with a black and yellow bomber or a green one.

Another cast

It is difficult to tell how close the trees behind the angler are which could make casting from here even more challenging. The cast looks to be a bit far from where he is (but maybe over the left shoulder). Then again, It could be that my depth perception is off. I usually do not go with white at first (unless really small) and I'd replace bubble gum with Crevette or green and brown. From the looks of the slightly downstream facing photo (the guy pointing), it looks like a long way around to get to the other shore, but if it is feasible, I'd prefer to put the fly on their heads with a shorter more controlled cast from the far shore. I guess if possible I would like to be where I can control a shorter cast and can see what they do when the fly arrives.

Hitch a small double (rat or something), grease up your leader, and strip like mad the second it hits the water. Go radical and do the same with a Madame X or that other rubber legged-bear haired monster that's fished up there (with the name I cannot pronounce).

Could also try some kind of damp nymph first to see if that'd do the trick.

He appears to be a lefty, if so he is already at a great advantage. However whether lefty or righty there are a few ways to skin this cat.

First of all even a righty striper fisherman has a trick up his sleeve. It's wasn't too long ago that people in New England would ridicule the backward caster but today it's a staple for dealing with cross-wind. A righty striper caster worth his salt could throw a backcast to the lie very effectively.

It's a good situation for a curve cast but he'd have to move closer toward the center a little bit to clear the trees as the start-up would be angled to the side of the trees to tuck it to the other bank. If the fish would tolerate wading to the edge of the shelf that is. Since they are facing the other way I might push that threshold a little.

It looks as if the shelf extends 15ft upriver and almost 10 in front, which would buy him a good cast to the lie if it does not spook the fish. Your previous post about colors of clothing play a big role here, also the limited arm and body movements when casting are critical.

If fishing a two-hander for instance I would not opt for a snap-T in this situation, nor a double spey but instead use a snake roll or a single spey.

In any case I wish it were me!
