Dry-Fly fishing is a visual sport. The more observant one is, the easier it is to spot new hatches and see what the trout are feeding on. Being observant requires tact, stealth and good eyesight - the combination of which is often impossible to achieve. This said, knowing to identify the way trout take hatching flies is essential. Knowing whether the fly is sitting on the surface of the water, whether it is breaking through the water's protective film to lay eggs or whether it is just 'skimming' above the surface of the water are key parts of being a successful dry-fly fisherman.
