Before I embraced the majesty of the fly rod, I grew up fishing the alpine lakes and highland reservoirs of Utah with the tried-n-true "fly and bubble" method. The set-up is simply an artificial bug of your choice on a long light leader (4-6' of 5x tippet works well) with a small in-line casting bubble on the mainline above a swivel on light spinning gear. Cast that SoB as far as you can and reel it back at slow to moderate speed - sort of a trolling effect. OK, I can hear the audible groaning from the purists now, but I'm just saying - it can be a riot on rippled stillwater with fish high in the water column. When even the smallest fish hits that moving bug it sends a shock wave through the light tackle. It's that sensation that got me hooked on fly fishing. Anyway - I recently resurrected the old technique and been using it from the banks of the nearest small King & Snoho Co. lakes when I'm short on time. It turns out the small bows and cutts have a fondness for the #14 renegades I tied up. Try it sometime. I won't tell.
