We've been doing it wrong all along!
While we're all for catch and release, many anglers do take a fish now and again, if you do it's nice to be able to avoid any wastage of this precise resource.
We stumbled across this great clip from RedCastle Outdoors. In almost 40 years of fly fishing we had never seen a fish filleted precisely this way - so simple, and now that we see it - so logical!

Fly Fishing Emergers. A semi-sunk fly projects more visible stimulus than a high and dry pattern, so it makes a lot of sense to use a design that penetrates the surface film as a ‘searching pattern’, rather than the high-riding flies usually recommended for this job like the Royal Wulff, Humpy or Elk Hair Caddis. For me, the old dry hackle jobs have been moved well down the bench, even for fast broken water.
