How many salmon in the river. Evidence of attack

Other evidence of number of salmon in the river we can get already in the process of fishing. Still, most of the time we spend not observing jumping fish but in trying to catch it. We must take into account that counting fish bites is even more questionable way of estimating the numbers of fish than its jumps. But we have no other way, and sometimes it does happen that catching gives a fairly correct answer.

Here you can underline 2 parts, one of which relates to our visual sensations and the other is sensitive or our hands. We can see the salmon's reaction to the fly or feel its bite.

Salmon in the state of rest is rarely noticeable, especially in deep pools or on the dark bottom. But the movement of the fish towards the fly sometimes gives it away. We usually do not notice movement of the fish to the surface or approaching the flies. Most often, we can see a trace on the surface in the form of a circle or a splash that indicates the turn of the fish from the fly. Whether the salmon took a fly or not, we can see a trace on the surface or a reflection of the body. Do not wait until the fish pulls the line. Considering that we do not feel significant part of the bites, pull the line as soon as we notice some movement. Like other fish, salmon quickly spits out all inedible objects. Even if it really visually liked your fly, in a second salmon will instinctively spit it out. Sometimes it looks like surface activity is not where our fly is and we pull he line just to check and surprisingly we hooked a fish. Its because we not always know for sure where our fly is at exact moment of time.

It is interesting that the rise of salmon to the fly does not always depend on the depth. Of course, usually we notice the movement of the fish on the shallows. But quite often the fish rises to the fly from the depth of 1.5 - 2 or even 3 meters. Here the situation depends on the place, fish and the fly itself, especially its movement. We will talk about this later, but in any case it's very important to observe the place where exactly your fly is working.

I want to say that many anglers having difficultis or are not taught to notice such movements of salmon. And such a trace is a sign that it is an active fish and it can react to the fly again. We only need to repeat the cast and put the fly in the same place. Salmon can approach the fly or attempt to attack it several times in a row. Here, the main thing is to notice in time the signs of the fish, repeat the cast and try not to scare off the fish. We need to know exactly where the fish is and where our fly is. That is why it is necessary to control the position and movement of the fly.

In such cases it is better to reduce the casting distance and do not throw uncontrolled meters of line and nylon loops. When noticing salmon movement you cant make the same cast and same presentation of the fly, then something needs to be changed you your fishing techniques.

Sometimes we do everything correct and the fly is almost in the same place as last cast but salmon does not want to shift aside and take your fly. You can find an exact spot of last salmon bite by using a long strip over territory of where the fish is. Fly goes diagonally or against the current, you can lower the fly and hold up again. There are many options, some of them provoke salmon for a second attack. Of course, all these tricks are not needed if there is a stupid and aggressive fish in front of you.

In the next part, let's talk about salmon attacks, and how it can indicate the amount of fish in the river.
