Master Class Monday: How to Cast to Trout in Backwaters


This week’s Master Class is appropriate for winter and early-spring dry-fly fishing, because on the rare day when trout feed on the surface in cold weather, they will likely be found cruising backwaters.

Catching trout in backwaters is a refined art. Watch superb anglers Dave and Amelia Jensen as they teach us tactics for catching what are often the biggest trout in any stretch of water. Also watch as one of them (we’re not sure who) misses a huge trout to a dry fly—the dreaded take when a fish is moving toward you!

Watch for further installments of Master Class Monday every week here at Orvis News, in the Advanced Tactics playlist our You Tube Channel, and on the new Advanced section of our Orvis Fly Fishing Learning Center.
