Can someone help me cast this on a spey rod?
If you use maggots on your fly rod, is it pre-fly fishing?
Like it or not that was a legally harvested fish and I suppose not one steelhead has been harvested by someone fishing with a nymph. Telling us about nymphers harvesting steelhead likely wouldn't fit with your particular brand of propaganda would it.
Piece of cake. Just do what the bobber guys do and plop it out their and feed line down the slot.

I like sitting back on anchor and shooting the shit with the guys and watching the takedown on divers and plugs. Eat, drink and doze off now and then.
Thats why I like indicator fishing. I can smoke and drink beer all the while fishing effectively with my flyrod pinched under my arm.
This picture bums me out
wait a minute, isn't that one of the reasons commonly given for swinging flies?
"gives you the chance to look around and absorb your surroundings whilst sipping on your scotch and smoking the finest of tobaccos in your pipe that has been passed down through generations"
Heeheehee, this thread is AwESoMe!!!! Minus the dude molesting that beast... Even though my methods are sometimes unorthodox and straight dirty, I always show the fish love. If that guy is handling the fish like that, I hope he didn't try to "revive" it afterward. Gee!!
I'm thinking all of that minus the bobber/diver dilly and spin-n-glow would be very manageable on a fly rod, the action would probably be nice and the steelies would kill it. . Actually instead of the spin-n-glow you could put a piece of sequine in front of it for some added action. Very tempting!
That would be considered fly fishing by a fair number of posters in this thread . . .
There are no swivels in fly fishing thats where I draw the line.
Casting that on a speyrod would be a challange,but with that diver plug in the mix you should be able to get a good bit of line stick to load the rod for the forward cast
Really? You draw the line at swivels?
the plug, spin and glo, bead/worm combo rig makes me wonder why some people say fly fishing is complicated....
Well, we fell way short of the projected 30 pages for this thread, so I would like to pose one question with only a one word answer.
Do you love or hate the Yarnie?
Neither. I would have to care about the Yarnie in order to either love it or hate it. Guess that makes me the uncaring type, with regards to Yarnies anyway.
