The STOP Process

Fly Fishing Tips


If like ourselves, you find the prospect of going fly fishing exciting, it’s easy to be too quick to start on your arrival waterside. Overcoming this can make your fishing more productive and enjoyable, that’s why we evolved STOP. A process to start each fishing day with.

It starts when you arrive at the water: –

  • Slow down, press the pause button.
  • Take a deep breath. Try inhaling deeply, then another, shorter inhalation prior to exhaling.
  • Observe your surroundings and the water. Deduce what is happening.
  • Proceed based upon your observation. Select where and how to start your fly fishing day.

That’s it, a short, yet highly effective way to get in the zone and start your fishing day.
