Pyramid Lake can be a puzzle.
The obvious question is how on earth does a new or even experienced fly fisherman prepare for catching a 20+ pound trout? Options can be overwhelming and as we all know the devil is in the detail…
Choosing a box of flies is often the easy part. You can get from our fishing report what flies have been working or what beach has been fishing well. And we in the shop can often share info from the day as guides and friends are calling in how they did.
What can be more difficult is how to fish the fly and what leader rig is effective. We are asked on a daily basis, how do we set up our leaders, at what depth do we fish our nymphs or balanced leech, how far do we separate our boobie and bugger?
Often we simply grab a piece of paper and sketch out what has been working for us and share this information.
We wanted to share this info with everyone in a more “professional” and understandable format. We prepared an easy to use graphic that show the two leaders we use most often. There is a leader for a shooting head set up and a leader for an indicator or No-Cator style.
These are the same leader we have discussed on the Reno Fly Shop Podcast.
Take a second and download these diagrams and take a look. Let us know what you think and how they fish. If you have any questions or comments swing by the shop or give us a call.
