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
Let me start off by saying that I am a scaredy cat.
For someone that spent 3 years in 82nd Airborne jumping out of all manner of military aircraft, my friends find this ludicrous - but... it is what it is!
Climbing stand? Yep, still scared - put me up 15' and that is about it.
Ladder stands? I am better in these - but still cautious.
Chain on stands? Used to love them, now they terrify me.
I was once ridiculed for putting chain on stands waaaay too high - some of my friends...
