Spanish term or phrase: rasera
Spanish from Spain, part of a fishing book.

As a fly fisher I should know this, but have never come across the word before. Anyone know the specific meaning?

"Existen pescadores tan incondicionalmente fieles a esta mosca, que dicen no necesitar ninguna otra imitación de tricóptero que la que aquí se exhibe.

En sus cajas descansan diversas vanantes que cubren todas las circunstancias de pesca: en aguas rápidas, lentas, con algas, bajo los árboles, pegados a las rocas de la orilla, en las **raseras**... todos los lugares son buenos para posar un tricóptero flor de escoba, esperando que allí haya una trucha al acecho."

Explanation:
Think the word derives from "rasa" meaning, as I am sure you know, shallow. Hope this helps, at least this is my intention and my humble suggestion. Good luck,

Thanks... you got me pointed in the right direction on this. In fly fishing lingo it's known as a "riffle", which is a "shallow run" or shallow stretch of water.

Explanation:
Couldn't this be a typo and instead of "raseras" it's "raseros"? Just a guess with Collin's help.
