    Wasn't me man. I think they are nice but no drool there. I did get to try them out at the casting clinic (guess you would call it a test drive). Black and Gold? Yeah I was thinking you would notice the little scratch on the finish. If you did sorry man since my hands are a little jittery as I get older.

    Pukers puke away. I find these types of threads rather entertaining.....much more so then the 9,861st "which five wt should I buy" threads.

    Honestly it is cool to see what tackle and tactics others use. Some I'll try, some I might not admit I'd try. By the way, I'm looking for a new 5wt...any recommendations?

    I use pink worms, but it's "acceptable" because there used as rubber legs on 9/0 stoneflys when I fish around Chernobyl

    Ed,
    I'd recommend a stout 5 wt capable of throwing worms, multiple bead patterns, mondo bobbers and an occasional jig. Would that cover your all of your fishing criteria? ;)

    Nice ties, Stonefish and Big E...

    Personally, I fish with whatever and however I can... short of dynamite and an electro-wand... though I've used those both before in the past... M-80's anyway.

    I fly-fish with beads in Alaska all the time, though I much prefer swinging streamers... occasionally I'll throw a nymph or even a dry fly. And when the doldrums settle in and times are tough, I turn to the Pink Worm. Berkely makes a 4" Bubblegum worm that I've had good luck with by threading a leader thru to a small glo-bug hook out the tail... I even made an articulated worm once with a conehead on it. Highly effective.

    Dont knock it till you try it.

    For many, it has little to do with how effective it is... And more because they're more in to the traditional aspects of fly presentation.

    Zandoli Pink worms.......good stuff......What I really like about them, you have to tie them. You can't buy them. Now go support your local fly shop.

    I see some people using pink rubber worms with a slinky weight and a big bobber on their spey rod rig too. Just another pathetic sign of our times- anything for a hero picture and a dollar.

    Or maybe they're having a legitimately good time doing it?

    I for one absolutely reject the notion that beads are fly gear. they simply are not as a matter of fact regardless of what the majority of people want to think.

    people have two problems
    1. they are unwilling to be patient enough to catch fish properly with an actual fly ( they need the ego boost of catching more than their share of fish) secondly they need the ego boost of people esteeming them highly because they are fly fishermen.

    if a person's ego is wrapped up in how others view them as an angler then they are fishing for the wrong reasons.

    that said i am sure you could do well spey casting a pink worm the trick would be keeping the worm from ripping..
