To the Point Tuesday! This goes back a decade, day #2 on a NZ spring creek. Just because it's new water and it's got a repute of being tough doesn't mean fish aren't still just fish... and they have to do what fish do. So if it refuses, give it another go at a slightly different angle, letting it come to you. It's seldom the fly pattern that needs changing as much as your presentation. How its food arrives is important, so be a better waiter or waitress. .
(And apparently we didn't say much on the water 10 or 11 years back!)
