In this great video from The New Fly Fisher, Colin McKeown explains why fish will hold in the hydro cushion or “pillow” on the upstream side of an obstruction. There are also some cool graphics and underwater photographer that explain why the spot is so attractive to fish–even really big ones. After watching this, you’ll never overlook a good pillow again.
