Controversial technique developed by UK fly fishers
(shame!) who, when frozen stiff by hypothermia fishing in arctic like
conditions, found out by accident that trout could hook themselves on a
stationary fly. The idea is to cast out a bouyant fly with a fast sinking
line, let it sink to the bottom and stand still until a trout foul hooks
itself in the mouth or throat. Some Kiwi anglers have taken this practice
to new depths and actually bring along a chair to sit in while they wait!
