The Approach

A successful presentation depends on your ability to plan and execute a cautious approach, keeping in mind the fish's cone of vision and feeding zone. Remember, the trout uses a variety of senses to detect predators and as fly fishermen, we are the predator.The trout can not only see you and hear you, but also can feel your presence through vibrations that communicate to his lateral line and warn him of impending danger of which the other senses may fail to warn. Plan your approach, taking the above into account before you attack. Walk softly and by all means, carry that big stick!
