When folks refer to straight lining I'm lost...
What's straight lining?
My interpretation is that it involves fishing a team of buzzers and/or nymphs with a floater or sink tip - line is kept straight & any slack picked up with a slow retrieve, usually v slow, takes are often solid lock ups & the fish tend to stay on - as long as your paying attention!
For info - there's no "proper" way fish buzzers or nymphs - but naturally people will have preferences & opinions! ;-)
Keep the flies in the water long as possible, less casting in tricky conditions.Wind now dropped to a mere 50mph for tomorrow's comp - fishery owner called round yesterday confirming the comp is still on!
Westerly wind too so the bank that has the most pegs will be head on!
