If You don’t Have a Plan….

..you won’t have anything to deviate from.

We arrived at the river the other day to find it unexpectedly high and off color due to unforecast overnight rain up in the drainage. So “Plan A” to fish a spot that required us to wade across the river for the morning was moot before we even got our boots on. We went to “Plan B” and did well by working the spots we could safely access without crossing. Then to “Plan C” which was to jump over to another nearby, smaller stream where we killed it and finished the morning with a flourish.

Things don’t always go the way you think they will. It pays to be flexible in your plan and versatile in your angling skills. Tenkara purists would have groaned at the rigs we fished under those challenging conditions….but the fish didn’t mind and neither did we!
