    The same way you would rig some chicken liver on a circle hook with a fifty pound test leader and a full three ounces of lead on the leader.
    I love to chunky dunk.

    nice fly...

    but if you read my post i was simply explaining why leaded line and split shot were different using a corky/foam as an example. the body of your fly could have been tied with a small bead and it still wouldn't make side drifting beads fly fishing.

    i'm glad that fly size (chickens) is now something that defines whether one is fly fishing. sucks for the lingcod, pike, and musky fly guys.

    but you're just a heathen that doesn't fish her dries dead-drift ;)

    side drifting with a fly rod can be a fun way to fish, but it cannot be fly fishing!

    Oh, but there you are wrong, sir, as my skating technique is as unconventional as my fly. I am a heathen who dead drifts into a skate and often picks them up on the dead drift. :)

    I could cast it with a gear rod also but I would do so with about 40 feet of flyline outside the tip just as you would do it with a fly rod. What I want to know is can you cast the setup with a bait caster in the way you would normally cast with a bait caster with about 3 or 4 feet of the tippet outside the tip and my guess is you could not.

    In the closing of this thread, I'd like to say "Thank You", to all that contributed.

    I was going to watch Netflix, but this was way more fun!

    Just so we're clear though... I can tie a stinger hook onto an orange Thingamabobber, swing it with T-14, and I'm still fly fishing right?

    or was it T-8....

    I don't know what T-14 is, or even T-8. Some kind of explosive plastic? I do know what a Thingamabobber is however. I have one on my key chain. I use it when my thingama is bobbing in the water.

    No he's not. Not even close. Apparently some of you haven't learned a thing with all this education you've received in this thread.

    So let me get this straight, its all flyfishing but buck fluffing is the moped of flyfishing where sinktipping is like riding a chopper?

    And howdy all, longtime lurker, first time poster!

    Who would do that?

    Apparently, Freestone would.
