Loch Style

Loch means lake and signifies still water fishing.  Anglers fish in pairs on drift boats.  The term “loch-style” is used to describe a method of still water fishing where the flies are cast, presented, and retrieved ahead of the drift of a boat, as it’s blown across the surface of a lake. The boat drifts broadside to the wind, with the fly fisher(s) seated sideways within the boat and with the wind against their back.

In comparison to fishing from a stationary or anchored boat, loch-style fishing allows the fly fisher to effectively cover a much greater area and number of trout within a similar time-frame. Fishing from a drifting boat provides the added advantage of a stealthy approach that significantly reduces the chance of spooking the trout as the fly is usually the first object that they will see.
