24Drifting On Giant Waters At times, the UK’s largest stillwaters can be daunting places for even seasoned reservoir fishers, let alone the novices. However, May and June bring with them a window of opportunity for the dry-fly angler and, with a little know-how of where to look, they can be faced with rise after rise from grown-on rainbow trout. Armed with a never-seen-before selection of killer dry flies, Jim Crawford takes to a rippled Rutland Water and explains how to make the most of the action!
