Fly fishing is quite an active form of fishing. In my case, I make my cast, work the line through the targeted water carefully, and cast again. I do this either in a series of fan casts to an area, or by moving down the bank. This approach keeps me very focused on watching the water at all times, anticipating a strike. As part of this approach, I like to move along the bank at a good pace when I fish.

On a stream, it is not uncommon for me to cover a half mile or more of water in an afternoon. When I fish Woods Canyon Lake in the fall for tigers and rainbows, I often hike to the spillway and then fish back to the boat ramp area in a morning.
