if i was the angler, i would cast up at the base of the swift current and let my fly float/drift on the bottom along on the bank where you took the picture. just from the looks of it there is an undercut that the creek made on the bank where the picture is taken. and undercut is (if you dont know) where the water cuts into the earth and the ground act like cover for fish. another thing too is to toss small micro jigs in there. basically same way that i said before, maby instead of driftingit down on the other side, slowly jig it towards you. if you were the fisherman. and what is going through my mind. DARN IT HES IN MY SPOT. just pass it up, holes not big enough for 2 people
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
