And if the fish moves over or rises to take a dead-drifted dry, emerger or nymph floating by it's feeding a fish but if it chases down a streamer or skater, it's moving fish and chasing down a fly is better? Guess I'd better throw my away all my Parachute Adams, PMD Emergers, Hares Ears, Pheasant Tails and all such flies as I have been fly fishing all wrong for 40 years. And what about Soft Hackles? I dead drift them and swing them. I guess I could purge my boxes but can I please keep my Royal Wulffs because I don't think I could live without them?!

Dry fly fisherpeople are just dirty bobber lobbers in disguise. Hopper/dropper my ass!

Is it ok if I have no idea what you guys are talking about?

There is a recurring, gentlemanly discussion on this forum about the virtues of nymph fishing for steelhead and (in particular) the use of an indicator teamed with a bead.

A quick site search of the term "bead" or perhaps "dirty ass nympher" will catch you right up :)

Oh Evan..

Just rename your indicator "Green Drake" or "Royal Wulff"... Hell, I named my steelhead sized bobbers "One of Leland's flies", and my trout sized ones "Size 22 Griffiths" just so I can be honest and people don't make fun of me..

And then when people ask you "what did you catch that one on?", you can look them in the eye and say "I was using One of Leland's flies".. Good for his sales, and good for your public image!

When you can use "dirty ass nympher" as a search term, you just know this forum is full of classic content!
