“I love fly fishing for brook trout in June! One of my favorite and most productive methods of brook trout angling is to utilize a great technique: the dry/dropper combo. The dry fly acts as (1) an extra opportunity to catch a fish, and (2) a strike indicator. I generally cast the combo upstream and allow to drift downstream at the same speed as the current. I’m sure that, with a little practice, you too will be able to catch tons of fish with this method.” –JB
