Resting lies are cushioned places where fish can rest from the current’s flow. Additional protective cover such as overhead vegetation or an increase in depth makes them more attractive for fish. Resting lies can lack a ready food supply and are usually distant from riffles. Fish seek resting spots during non-hatching and brightly lit conditions. Fish readily migrate out of resting lies during a hatch and subdued light. Since food can be scarce in resting lies, the fish may become opportunistic feeders. An attractor fly can be productive when fished in rest stops.
