Dry Fly Fishing Down Stream | How To

In this detailed video, Simon Gawesworth explains how to fish a dry fly in a river downstream. Most anglers fish a dry fly to trout by casting upstream, but the downstream dry fly can give anglers a great edge when it comes to catching a particularly wary trout. Simon shows how to get an effective presentation of a dry fly to a rising fish when cast downstream, and also explains how to carefully approach the casting aspect to avoid scaring a fish.

Any angler watching this video will be left with the knowledge of this very effective river trout fly fishing technique, and will learn a few of the subtleties that make it so deadly. Simon finishes the film by catching a beautiful, large cutthroat trout from under a tricky tree branch.

    I always feel fishing downstream w a dry is cheating, it’s too easy. I call it walking the dog.

    My man busted out a whole spool of line! Lmfao. Rio sells 12′ leader. Which is what I get just for this very same type of fishing. Helps save me some tippet. 🎣🤗😎

    Usually I’ll go upstream and hook the cast to keep it out of the fish’s face but sometimes currents don’t play nice. When it all comes together the down stream dry is truly awesome!

    Technically fishing almost parallel not downstream but to each their own. Nice fish

    How did you get your net detached

  12. FordFracture on October 12, 2020 at 7:04 am

    I’m not a pro like you but I cast up stream and let it float down and past me and pull in slack when needed and it has worked for me ( many years )

    Simon, you have helped make my passion even better! You probably don’t hear me, but I’m talking to you every "fishing" weekend!! All your how to’s end up on my river!! Thank you ever so much!!!

    Thanks. That will help out. Many creeks i fish has to be fished downstream cause upstream is blocked.

  23. sandwich eater on October 12, 2020 at 7:37 am

    Aren’t you quartering down stream?

  24. James Shimer on October 12, 2020 at 7:37 am

    Am I the only one who finds quartering down way more successful than upstream?

  25. Dirk Reese on October 12, 2020 at 7:41 am

    Nice Pool!

    Great video, very helpful! Early on he says there is no way a fish would take a fly dragging across the surface, but at 04:50 this is disproven when a fish takes the fly while it’s under drag. Sometimes downstream with drag (skating) can be a effective way to fish.
