On each and every day of Stillwater fishing, there are four rods rigged and ready to go in the boat at all times. During both spring and fall season, this does not vary a whole lot aside from changing fly lines to match a specific situation. Here is a quick rundown on each setup:
Rods #1 & 2 – Floating Line/Indicator: Probably 80% of our Stillwater fishing is done with a floating line setup, and a large majority of that floating line fishing is done with a strike indicator setup. Leader length will vary depending on the depth of water being fished, and sometimes one rod (or both) will be stripped of the indicator for naked line chironomid or scud fishing.
