Small Streams in Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
When fishing smaller streams, its not the type of fly that you use that attracts the fish, its the presentation. Wild fish are opportunistic feeders so if you make a nice cast to a feeding fish most of the time they will try to eat it. Slow down and work on not spooking the fish rather than worrying about fly selection.
