Tuesday 207

painting by Jessica Ives


Charlie Meyers writes in The Little Red Book Of Fly Fishing

While paying attention to color and camouflage is a benefit under any light condition, it works even better if an angler can find a casting position in the shade. All other things being equal, choose to fish the shady side of the stream to avoid spooking trout. Also consider that trout don’t like looking up into the sun, so most of their rises to dry flies are likely in shady spots. Trout are also less likely to spot the fraud in the fly with the diminished light.


Every Tuesday The Maine will post a new painting by Jessica Ives. These small works, all 4 x 4 inches on cradled birchwood panels, will be concurrently listed for auction on dailypaintworks.com, a fantastic platform designed by artists, for artists.
