    Might as well learn it all!
    Pulling plugs with rods over 10' and costing thousands.
    Proper rowing techniques.
    Best knots for your plugs.
    Yes, size is important.
    Best colors for the OP.
    Spey casting plugs...or as I like to say "Pokin' Plugs!"

    I am especially interested in 2 handed plug chucking.

    I've got some plugs. Never thought of tossing them with the two hander, but why not? All mine have single point barbless hooks already, that is how I fished them before my fly flinging days.

    You might want to drop a line to Stew D. I am sure he would be all over this and could bring his minions along!

    Just added my plugs to my Hoh Down gear packing list. If I follow my packing protocol I'll have them and will be able to see how well they cast on my two hander. I guess I'll be up for swinging some plugs if Stewart Dee and/or Golfman are!

    You are blurring the lines Stilly! Plugs, hot shot and quik fish are okay but indicators are not?

    personal preference. I swing dick nites on the long rod already. At least its on the swing right?
    But more importantly, I like giving people shit for no apparent reason. Ive never personally been outfishedby a bead,so I have no direct animosity. Plus, you gotta love the rediculous grabs you get from plugs. Rip the rod out of your hand style grabs. Thats what I feel bobber fishing a bead robs from the general experience, you never feel the fury of that super aggressive take. That to me is the soul of steelheading. Nothing else like it.
