One subject I have never seen any input on,and without going all ballistic on me,would you ever consider putting scent(Pro-Cure or something like that)on a fly?
I love to push the flyfishing envelope so I'll try just about anything once. For winter steelhead, we tried building spinners we could cast with our fly rods. One of my friends did catch a steelhead with one of the spinners but it turns out that it is damned difficult to keep the spinner blades spinning with fly gear so we gave up on that one too.
Flyfishing Purist I ain't no ever will be .....
