Tip of the Week: How to "Hump Mend" Streamers on a Floating Line

Fly Fishing Lodge In this video, Joe Rotter from Red’s Fly Shop demonstrates how he uses the hump mend and the give-and-go to get a good streamer presentation with a floating the line. The hump mend breaks the current’s grip on your line, allowing the fly to sink without being under tension. All you do is move your rod tip quickly upward about two feet and then back down. Once the fly begins to swing in the current, use a jigging motion and then the give-and-go, in which you feed bits of slack into your line as the fly swings. Written By: Phil Monahan ]]>
