The Bank: Ep04 “Shallow Dropper – Side Sweep”

Published on Nov 20, 2015 by Editor in chief

There are a few little hints in this one as we walk a small stream that is entering summer drought and warmer temperatures. The water is still cool but fish are starting to nose into the heads of riffles, holding prime feeding and holding lies. This is the step before they find warm water cover to rest in – or leave for deeper, cooler waters. This nice brown is actively feeding, we watched it do some wide feeding swings to nymphs prior to filming. Note the discussion about why we’re using a shallow dropper set-up as well as why Dave fights the fish as he does. Both are effective in these situations.
