    Great thread, I enjoy all the wonderfully insightful messages. Thank you Eastside rivers! By the way I'm a visual guy and the times I've hooked fish at the end of a drift or when I've turned my back to my indicator, I've always been a bit bummed that I didn't get to see it go under. So for those of you who still use the whole argument that everyone would prefer to catch a fish swinging, please give it up, please? I will not begrudge the fact that you enjoy a good tug, I prefer a peep show.

    I'm begging to think you guys don't actually fish for steelhead, but rather just whine about not getting out. I know most of you guys here could out fish me hands down. I've only been out twice this year, went 3 for 5 on the first trip and 3 for 10 on the second. If there's a steelie in the run, it can be caught. Come on guys, if I can catch them I KNOW you can.

    Dude, you'd better check the regs. I could be wrong but I think whitefish doesn't open 'til Dec 1. Geez, people poaching our wild, native whitefish! What will it be next?! Our native pikeminnow? Is nothing sacred anymore?

    Huh?

    You must have missed something. Then again I actually read every one of these posts before posting myself so if you didn't there is no way I could argue who is better here.

    It's a 2 year old thread. Any mention of nymphing (Christian's excluded) was 2 years old.

    The best one (and I witnessed this personally) was The sudden lack to speak English. No lie, I was talking to a guy explaining he can't use bait (he was speaking perfect English). When the officer showed up, all of a sudden he couldn't "understand" what the patrolman was saying.

    Huh again? Mentioned in this thread and more often and more recent than 2 years ago. Just saying. Besides, and I know this is treasoness, I don't just nymph, sometimes I indicator fish swinging flies. I think I just heard a sudden intake of breath from the forum. I wonder if Haig would have indicator fished with nymphs if he would have know how well it worked? I wonder how "tradition" would look different. Oh to only have a time machine and alternate time lines to explore.

    The officer just needs to say he's shooting anyone in brown shoes. Pablo no hablo will look down to see what shoes he has on.
