Well said Mark. Thats exactly how I feel. :thumb:
Bet you sniffed it too, - naughty boy.
19 and counting...
Nymphing and catching fish on the nymph really is just easier. It's easier to get down, easier to stay down, and easier to just feed a bobbercator right down the slot. Anybody who says things different hasn't swung much. Add a couple split shot, remove a shot, adjust depth of your offering, and then just lob and mend. Mending a floating line is a whole lot easier than trying to manipulate a subsurface line/tip/fly to keep it in the stones where the fish are more likely to take your offering.
Anybody who feels differently is just wrong.......
...and this is where I walk away. Have fun!
If you need to proclaim your departure... Don't let the door hit you........
Some folks are against nymphing because some folks are dicks. Some folks are against swinging because some folks are dicks. I guess were all just a bunch of dicks who like to fish with equipment that is hard to cast.
I'll bet you you could tie a killer wooly bugger from Sib's fro!
Steelhead are stupid either way. Anyone who says different either knows more than me (quite likely), doesn't know more than me (also likely) or they're just wrong.
Shouldn't we be debating this about an intelligent fish like the carp instead?
Gees man, it took you until page 19 to chime in on this discussion?! Where have you been my friend?
Remove the split shot from your leader, and your equipment won't be so hard to cast. Just tryin' to help this thread make 20.
Add more splitshot, shorten you floating line length, and do it the great lakes way. Salmo don't know what he's talking about.
jroni, when does the sequel come out?
From what I understand nymphing steelhead on the east side is so easy that you have to learn how not to land fish so you can keep fishing. It's so easy even a caveman can do it. Just doesn't seem sporting to me if you have to learn how not to catch 'em.
PT, when I fished the GL's streams (used to all the time when i was married to my exwife) very few used splitshot. Most used slinkies on thier lines. Really brought that sucker down. Drift fishing with a flyrod. Only the rookies used splitshot back there. But that was on the Ohio streams and some of the MI streams I was fishing though. So maybe I missed a few when I was there. :rofl::rofl::rofl::beer1:
That's how I was taught to do it back there too. It sucked so much I moved here.
