    I didn't want to encroach on the vast amounts of knowledge being dropped on the "Yarnies" thread...

    If you want to peg a bead, use this.

    If you want to swing a marabou, use this.

    If you want to throw a jig under a bobber, use this.

    Who says one fly can't do it all?

    Who says you can't make everyone happy?

    You're welcome.

    I would have tied it balance style, but it's ok I guess. :)

    Looks too much like a fly to be fished under a bobber. It's not balanced because it's supposed to be swung..... OP must not be very well versed in bobber fishing "flies."

    I'm with PT. It'd swing wonderfully. It'd be all weird under a bobber.

    Nah, I've caught plenty of steel on traditional swinging patterns while floating them under indicators, both as a static presentation and as a swung fly at the end of my drift. It would work fine under an indicator, just better tied balance style.

    Nothing, I use "Indicators" if it bobs, you are doing it wrong.

    so wrong it's right.


    in all seriousness, that's really what I more in mind...

    I have yet to find a fly that I really like for both. The buggers that I typically nymph with in the winter are slender with a sparse marabou tail so they sink better with minimal weight, but I don't like them for swinging & the flies I'm typically swinging in the winter are similar to the above, just minus the bead...basically anything with marabou that gives a slightly larger profile.

    Hey, I watched you catch a steelhead using a non fly fishing bobber. It bobbed plenty.

    ah, but see then it would lose the true "jig" qualities.

    I'd rather see my bobber bob than do nothing. More times it bobs, the better.

    True, true, but those were wave "bobs", not fish bobs a clear distinction no doubt.

    Rather than using an inline or slinky weight under a bobber.. I'd make an approximate 3/8 oz shot line to about a 3' to 4' tippet and that flyjigtruderegg pattern would be all kinds of awesome bobbing down a river under a center pin.

    That's clearly a swinging fly. Off a bobber it would jump up and down and we all know steelhead don't like the jumping crap because they don't like to miss.

    I refuse to tie any of that new-agey crap. Only the most traditional for me. IMG_2538.jpg

    As others have mentioned, this should be only be used for swinging...

    A slow strip retrieve off a full floater in frog water would also work on the humpies, chum, and coho. Putting the bead up front may be worth playing with for more of the ESL approach - would also make it more jiggy I think.

    You could probably do some serious Cutty slaying with it as well. Call it "the whole package" fly or "the dirty". It has everything!
