Spot your target trevally, watch it's approach path, position yourself ahead of the fish while crouching down and strip out line. Cast the fly several feet in front of the trevally, strip once to get its attention and present a profile, then strip fast to trigger a strike. Strip set the hook hard with a long firm pull, repeat.
