Vortex Feeding Trout
Posted 31 July 2017 - 01:56 AM
In riffles I see mini versions of this, in fact, the riffle above my riddle, just like you describe, but same deal can't set the hook, either I set too soon or late.
I did discover for sippers greasing the leader increases my sucess rate. That tip I plucked from the Gary Borger series I watched every winter during my youth. "Grease the leader and its in the bag"
Anyway, tight lines

At one point in history the majority of the worlds population believed the world was flat...
The Archerfish shoots water at bugs outside of the water. The feeding pattern I've 100% witnessed, on several occasions, is actually the opposite to an Archerfish. The educated trout I have witnessed performing this feeding method pulls/sucks the fly towards them, its brilliant.
You can choose to not believe something you have not witnessed, that is your right, and only a libtard will try and revoke that right through violence or labeling you a racist, xenophobic, homophobic, etc just because you don't agree with them. However, for those non-believers of the vortex feeding trout, don't be closed minded, perhaps, someday, you will hear and see this rise, and are lucky enough to time it right (that was the question peeps) as your fly gets sucked down, and you land a fish of a lifetime!

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”

I am real late to this discussion. But my $.02 worth. I find I miss dry fly takes most often when I am using a fly that has either a substantial wing or very stiff hackles on a small fly. My best success with hook sets are using CDC flies or spinners.
My theory is real simple, the stiff wing or hackle gives the hook some separation from the trout's mouth and it feels unatural to the fish so it rejects it more quickly, while the CDC is so soft, it feels more natural and lets the hook point slide on the trout's mouth to give it a chance to catch. I suppose some of that difference is also that I am more likely to use stiffer materials on flies that I will use in riffles rather than on slower where I am more likely to use CDC and it might just be that the trout are not as accurate in the rapidly moving water.
Sure, I've missed some fish by taking it away from them in slow water before they inhale it, especially if I am watching the fish tilt up and take the fly slowly, but that is usually pretty clear.
