Video – Surface Action
Normally, large trout in smaller water spook very easily, so it is extremely difficult to get close. However, in late summer when the hoppers are around, big fish feed aggressively and get careless, much to our delight.
In the following exclusive video, Surface Action, we explore smaller water using terrestrial patterns to entice big hungry browns and rainbows for some incredible surface action.
For these angling situations, we prefer our Freshwater AIR 4 weights. They have the power to turn over bigger hopper patterns, yet allow for optimal delicacy while fishing spooky spring creek fish.
Blog – The Albie Approach
“The explosive blitzes and readiness to eat flies make false albacore an angler’s dream. When hooked, one should expect a very fast run that almost always peels dozens of yards into the backing. While “albies” will not showcase the same power as their larger tuna cousins, they’re still plenty of fun on a 9 or 10 weight.”
