The world's best flyfishing site.


High Water

In salt water fishing, the point at which the tide is full in. For tidal water salmon and seatrout fishing, the point at which the water is at it's highest level and thus more fish are moving. In freshwater fishing the level of water above the normal level that indicates a spate and an increased chance of catching salmon. Alternatively, the time you go home after a blank day. This comes from the phrase "I'm not going home come hell or high water, until I catch a fish". Usually a sign of desperation.
