    Just trying to keep a worth while thread alive...the video that is. With all the bad weather I've saved this clip to my work computer and watch it more than a few times a day. Still amazed...can't wait for summer, AFS lines and dryflys! I've never seen anyone pop, skip and jerk a fly like that before...but I can sure see myself trying it now.

    Anyone else seen anything like this before?

    The guys that I fish with and I have been doing it for 20+ years. Nothing new here. A certain someone may lead you to believe it is new, and that he started it. Complete poppycock!!! I give him one thing though, he paid attention in his marketing class.

    Mark, thanks for piping in. So is there anything you can tell us about this technique that isn't illustrated in the clip?

    Thanks again, James.

    GM,

    Go out and mess around with it. Put some action on that puppy! I try to find a rhythm and keep that rhythmic pulse throughout the swing. It works well. You will find your own style when you mess around with it a bit. It can vary as the runs do.

    It's fun as heck too. Gives you something to do while you watch your fly. Don't yank it too hard because you may yank it right away from a fish. That's why a rhythmic pulse where a fish can zero in on it seems best. When it's real erratic you may get um up but they won't eat it cause you keep moving it too much. Kind of saw some of that in the video. That guy was kind of an erratic twitcher.

    a rhythmic chug is good, but a single chug over a located /known fish can also be very effectlve

    I've got a Mac. Can anyone tell me how to "right click" and save it to my desktop?
    I do seem to have a problem viewing certain movies. I need to find some kind of tutorial I guess.
    Thanks for the help.

    Not sure how to do it on a Mac...but on a PC, you right click and select "Save Target AS.." You shouldn't have any problems its a quicktime video which is an apple product. I just checked mine it's Quick time version 7.5.5, try downloading the free version if you don't have it.

    James.

    On a Mac, the video should embed in the browser window when it plays. Under the bottom right-hand corner of the video there should be a small upside-down triangle, click on it and choose the option to save as a quicktime movie.

    Click System Preferences
    Click Keyboard & Mouse
    Click Mouse tab if it isn't already selected
    On right side of mouse select secondary button
    Exit

    I have Leopard. If you have a different OS, it might be slightly different.

    Keep it mind that, if I'm correct, this only works with certain mice (ie. not the built-in mice on apple laptops). Another simple solution is to hold down the 'ctrl' key while clicking with the mouse whenever you want to right click.

    In the spirit of keeping on topic, thanks for sharing the video. Makes me wish I wasn't seeing flood warnings for all of Western Washington right now.
