Gink and Gasoline has a fantastic article over at their blogsite that I encourage everyone to check out. The article simplifies and gives a great overview of proper mending and controlling line during a drift to achieve a natural presentation.
This skill is something that took awhile for myself (and I’m sure others) to fully understand and master. However, once some common misconceptions (mentioned in the G&G article) were overcome, it all became much easier.
One of the biggest things that helped me is to over-exaggerate the mend, and don’t be afraid to move the indicator back up the stream – it allows the bugs to drop in under the indicator and be properly positioned for the downstream drift.
Here’s a good video of proper mending
