What its the deal with the Dick nite. Fish it off a tip?. What size?. Just setting swing like a fly? Have heard of this never tried it.
small dick nite huh....I've heard of people doing this as well. I've never tried it...seems like it wouldn't be that hard, I'm willing to bet that many of the flies that I throw with my spey rod are heavier and bulkier than one of those wee peni...I mean dick nites.
If it's on a fly rod, it's called a "penis evening."
It's just less vulgar that way.
Evan, that was fantastic!
Or fish something like a prom dress in copper with the swing/strip/jerk retrieve, OR the straight across and two hand strip speed retrieve.
Get em in the right mood and they will race across a pool to grab a copper prom dress
Fish it just like you would a fly, use the one inch size. I can't say any more about the technique with out feeling guilty of corrupting some flyfishers and sending them over to the dark side!!!!
best way to fish Dick Nites is with a intermediate clear tip
50/50 wee tallywhacker twilight on a type 3 tip works great on spey rods. No need to twitch, just swing it smoothly for a good flutter.
Already said, it but its worth repeating. Coho tend to stack in slack water. You need current to swing.
I disagree, I've caught a fair share of coho by swinging flies or spinners through current seams and riffles or deep holes near rocks. They do like slack water under the right circumstances, but I caught some on the Sol Duc and Kalama last fall swinging sparse flies on with a spey rod with skagit line and 10' of T13; there's no doubt I was swinging but I did add a twitch as the fly passed downstream of where I was standing.
Also, I've found that coho in slack water are generally not "players" and those in travelling lanes or deep holes with current are better biters. There's a reason why gear guys pull plugs through deep slots with current and drift eggs and jigs through seams.
I concur with ten eighty
Anyone ever fished a Dick Nite behind a tube fly? Does that make it less dirty, or twice as dirty?
