    Default Best wind for using a drogue.

    I'm out tomorrow on Loch Watten and the forecast is for 13mph winds with gust upto 30, average about 22mph.
    It will be my first time with a drogue after two unsuccessful trips last season spending the whole time rowing.
    Is there an ideal range for the wind to drift along?

    If your struggling to keep up with your flies while pulling , or want to fish slower put the drogue in

    I put the drogue out in pretty much any breeze to keeps the boat square without it the direction your facing is unpredictable.
