How to Fly Fish Merging Glides and Pools

Merging Glide and Pool
Glides and pools are somewhat similar in that they both have glass like surfaces with intermittent surface depressions. Pools, however, are usually deeper and have a slower current speed. Glides may also contain a more varied bottom structure such as larger boulders, ledges, drop offs and undercut banks. In both water types fish can be more selective so longer leaders, lighter tippets, smaller flies and more precise presentation is necessary. Also, patience and persistence may be more critical in pools.

The above picture is a good example of a glide flowing and blending into a pool. The white arrows are showing the potential holding positions of fish.
