In defense of small water

October 04, 2016

We love big fish over here at RepYourWater as much as the next person, but we also would like to point out the merits of fishing a remote piece of small water. There is less pressure from other anglers on this type of water, but also less mental pressure. You know you are not going to hook into an 8 lb brown and that is OK. You can leave the double nymph rig at home, ditch the indicators and tie on a dry fly. It is easy to forget how pleasurable it is to cast a single dry fly. Glorious. Hemingway would be proud. So before the season slips away, dig up that old three weight, preferably in glass or grass, and get out to your favorite small water.
