Drifting a Bead setup?

Discussion in 'Spey Clave' started by stewart dee, Feb 9, 2011.

  1. So this weekend I have a new Spey line for indicator and beads (going to the Sky). Anyone try this? can the rod cast a bobber (thingymabober), some small lead and a leader of about 12 ft. tipped with a nice yellow/pink/pearl bead? What is a good color for this? And how far do you let the set-up drift down stream?
  2. well stew first off you need some 30lb maxxima.

    the good thing about a thingamabobber is it is light and casts easy. you can adjust depth easy too.

    basically the idea is to just cast out about 1000 times and use a snell knot because you dont want ur clinch not to break. plus speytards cant use snell knots so they get jealous.

    but yea just find a spot and start castin u dont have to do anything fancy just get it out there and when it disapears, just pull back really hard on the rod! FISH ON!

  3. oh and if there is some good soft current u can just turn off the drag off on the reel and let it float all the way to the backing or more. just make sure u use a lot of split shot for this.
  4. Last time I did this on the upper Sky, I hooked 3, landed 5! We'll take my boat up this weekend and float from the confluence down to high bridge. I have an extra spot available if someone's okay with sitting on the cooler.
  5. So I need 30lb for what part of the setup? thanks
  6. 30lb wire leader tippet
  7. You sick bastard! A single bead may be the most deadly technique of all fishing methods, fly or gear.
    Cut a piece of 24 inch leader in half. Then tie it back together with a snell knot. Put the gammi hook at the end of this and drop the bead on top of the knot then secure it with a toothpick. Above the bead there should be about 14 inches of leader. Cut off another chunk of leader and snell it to that. Drop the split shot on top of the snell so it wont slide. The rest is straight forward.
  8. Funny Evan. I need to get this thing in working order. The only way to fish this water I will be at is in a strike indi and a small bead. Since I don't own a single or switch rod I am stuck with what I have at the time.
  9. Just use your longest spey rod. Better line control that way. You'll be able to mend 100' casts.
  10. Let me know the approximate time you'll be running Boulder Drop and I'll shoot some video of the guy on the cooler...

  11. I'll just take the line these guys did
  12. Oooh right Stewart.... now you getting with the program...just listen to Evan.. now you going to hook into fish for sure .. goodluck
  13. Why is this gear fishing bullshit in the spey fishing section..or fly fishing for that matter..

    hope one of those beads gets stuck up your ass stew...
  14. wow bro lay off the rage juice!
  15. Wait a minute, isn't Stewart Capt. anti-bead? What's this all about?
  16. Sarcasm is “a sharp, bitter, or cutting expression or remark; a bitter jibe or taunt.”[1] Though irony is usually the immediate context,[2] most authorities sharply distinguish sarcasm from irony;[3] however, others argue that sarcasm may or often does involve irony[4] or employs ambivalence.[5] Sarcasm has been suggested as a possible bullying action in some circumstances.[6]

    Origin of the term

    It is first recorded in English in 1579, in an annotation to The Shepheardes Calender: October:
    Tom piper) An Ironicall [Sarcasmus], spoken in derision of these rude wits, whych make more account of a ryming rybaud,[7] then of skill grounded vpon learning and iudgment.
    —Edmund Spenser[8]
    The word comes from the late Greek σαρκαζμόσ (sarkazmos) taken from the word σαρκάζειν meaning 'to tear flesh, gnash the teeth, speak bitterly'.[9] However, the ancient Greek word for the rhetorical concept of taunting was instead χλευασμός (chleyasmόs).[citation needed]

    Dictionary.com describes the use of sarcasm thus:
    In sarcasm, ridicule or mockery is used harshly, often crudely and contemptuously, for destructive purposes. It may be used in an indirect manner, and have the form of irony, as in “What a fine musician you turned out to be!” or it may be used in the form of a direct statement, “You couldn't play one piece correctly if you had two assistants.” The distinctive quality of sarcasm is present in the spoken word and manifested chiefly by vocal inflection ...[10]
    Hostile, critical comments may be expressed in an ironic way, such as saying "don't work too hard" to a lazy worker. The use of irony introduces an element of humour which may make the criticism seem more polite and less aggressive. Sarcasm can frequently be unnoticed in print form, often times requiring the inflection or tone of voice to indicate the quip.[citation needed]

    Understanding the subtlety of this usage requires second-order interpretation of the speaker's intentions. This sophisticated understanding can be lacking in some people with certain forms of brain damage, dementia and autism,[11] and this perception has been located by MRI in the right parahippocampal gyrus.[12][13]
    Cultural perspectives on sarcasm vary widely with more than a few cultures and linguistic groups finding it offensive to varying degrees. Thomas Carlyle despised it: "Sarcasm I now see to be, in general, the language of the devil; for which reason I have long since as good as renounced it".[14] Fyodor Dostoyevsky, on the other hand, recognized in it a cry of pain: Sarcasm, he said, was "usually the last refuge of modest and chaste-souled people when the privacy of their soul is coarsely and intrusively invaded."[15] RFC 1855, a collection of guidelines for Internet communications, even includes a warning to be especially careful with it as it "may not travel well".
    [edit]Vocal indication

    In English, sarcasm in amateur actors is often telegraphed with kinesic/prosodic cues[16] by speaking more slowly and with a lower pitch. Similarly, Dutch uses a lowered pitch; sometimes to such an extent that the expression is reduced to a mere mumble. But other research shows that there are many ways that real speakers signal sarcastic intentions. One study found that in Cantonese sarcasm is indicated by raising the fundamental frequency of one's voice.[17]
    [edit]Sarcasm punctuation

    Main article: Irony punctuation
    Though in the English language there is no standard accepted method to denote irony or sarcasm in written conversation, several forms of punctuation have been proposed. Among the oldest and frequently attested are the percontation point--furthered by Henry Denham in the 1580s—and the irony mark--furthered by Alcanter de Brahm in the 19th century. Both of these marks were represented visually by a backwards question mark (unicode U+2E2E). A more recent example is the snark mark. Each of these punctuation marks are primarily used to indicate that a sentence should be understood at a second level. A bracketed exclamation point and/or question mark as well as scare quotes are also sometimes used to express irony or sarcasm.
    In certain Ethiopic languages, sarcasm and unreal phrases are indicated at the end of a sentence with a sarcasm mark called temherte slaq, a character that looks like an inverted exclamation point ¡.[18]
    In an increasingly technological world, the use of sarcasm in email, text messaging, message boards and blogs has often been misunderstood as ignorance or stupidity: comments meant to be sarcastic have been taken literally or seriously. A newer trend in using sarcasm in cyberspace is to use an italic font for the proposed sarcastic remark to quell any questions as to the intent of a comment[citation needed] or to enclose the sarcastic remark in sarcasm tags as a form of pseudo-HTML such as the following:
    <sarcasm>I'm sure they'll do great.</sarcasm>[citation needed]
