    Great suggestion WW! I have a bunch of Kwikfish plugs, even size 16s, that I got for chinook fishing and, like my box of beads, are virgins. If somebody can give me lessons on huckin' these things with a Spey rod, then it's that many fewer flies I need to tie and can finally get some use out of these damn banana shaped lures, bacon wrapped or not.

    THANK GOD! You had me worried there for a moment. I've tried Dick Nites off the end of a sink tip well in the past, use a round bottom snap swivel and clip on and off you go. Never did anything that way (hook a fish) but it sounds like a workable situation for low water fishing.

    Casting a Hot Shot ... that I couldn't even imagine.

    Fred, I might be able to get you a couple of the Wells spoons, if they are being made again. Like I said superior action to the DN and they cast a heck of a lot easier. Love the whirring sound they make as they buzz past my ear.

    I too use a small swivel to cast the DN on the fly rod. I don't think they are that much of a bitch to cast on a one hander, Im sure you wouldnt even notice it on a 2 hander. They do mke mini hot shots an wiggle warts and kwikfish that Im sure would be castable on a 2 hander. youd need a good lifting cast to get it to the surface, maybe a snap t or c spey? Experimentation must be one

    I have yet to discover a fly for coho that works better than a Dick Nite on a 15' sink tip.
    They actually cast better with a spey cast than they do overhead. It's the back casting that introduces all the tangles. :)

    The only problem with bacon wrapped quick fish is i ALWAYS get a treble or two in my mouth by the time the day is over......I love bacon.

    Brady, that is not a fly rod. You are doing it all wrong. You really need to attend the KerryS _WW_ BennysBuddy clave.

    That is one helluva comment on the state of affairs. A once world renowned, storied, and famous Steelhead river now reduced to a fuckin' spoon fishery for pinks...:(

    Watta yu mean reduced to a spoon fishery for slimers? Hell, ya know we have been secretly fishing slimers with 2 handers and spoons for years. Next is to fish for slimers with a 3 weight single and see how much slimer a 3 can handle before it snaps. Extra points if it breaks in more than one place.

    My father in law ties "Fl-ures" which are lures chucked on a fly rod. Most are similar to WW's link. Lightweight plugs with diver or wiggle lips for action. He says to open the loop and not try to do to much with them in the air, but in the water they take care of themselves.
