I love the steelhead thread...
No better way to forget this nonsense than a night out with the better half. Perhaps I should go spend time with mine instead of arguing on WFF and tying super weighted clousers. It may just be worth my while.
Have a good time!
I like beads and sometimes yarnies with egg loops and sand shrimp.
Yarnies will be a solid bet during december considering the cold water temps and hatchery fish. That would be a much better technique compared to swinging flies, but people will differ with my opinion.
I wait to swing flies until wild fish show up and stick to gear that catches hatchery fish considering I want as many of them as possible out of the water.
Ringlee and Sean have nailed it. If you're fishing over hatchery turds, follow Sean's advice and stack up the yarnies. The hatchery fish can be tight lipped, and they don't belong in the river. When I'm fishing a hatchery run, all standards are out the window and I'll fish anything to get a limit (within the regulations). Yarnies, beads, plugs, spoons, eggs... It's fishing, and fishing makes me happy.
If we're talking wild runs, then yeah, I'll show some restraint. But hell, hatchery fish are there to harvest, so why not fish however you want, whether it be the most effective, or least effective method that pleases you?
You are 100% fine. No worries at all
What you find when you google yarnies:
Dry flies- wet flies- weighted nymphs- spoons- jigs -spinners- plugs- corkies -yarnballs- roe- worms- sandshrimp- etc.
I wouldn't limit my method of attack. Fishing is so much fun, why not use the tools out there. I only want to be 'handcuffed' in the bedroom , not on the riverbed.
nobody fucking said anything related to that in this thread until mr. sensitive made it the subject.
I see a lot of usable material on these yarnies, especially the "hair"!
so you are saying swing fishermen are animal rights activists who hate hooking fish?
sucks when people put words in your mouth
David, where can i find a pattern for a Little Sol Duc?
just buy steelhead bait hooks, tie them on with a bait loop then cut yourglo bug yarn and sinch it in the loop...
What were you saying about words into ones mouth? Sensitive, laughable! Potkettleblack! Who used a swear word first? Ha ha ha.
