Zen Fly Fishing Photo Gallery: Brett's Water

Brett found an area where the waves would run up the shore in sort of a half circle. After a series of waves would roll up. The current or wash back would run almost parallel to the shoreline for about 75 yards and it would remain knee deep for extended periods.
The photo was taken at low tide and the dynamics of the water movement changes considerably. At higher tides the waves roll up a steeper slope that starts at the jetty shown in the background. The pitch of beach acts as the angled arc edge of a gold pan and creates the parallel movement. It is this situation that he can find the Perch in closer to shore and reach them with his fly rod.
