    Lagging economic indicator
    After catching the bright summer run on a leech, I tried some nymphing under an indicator to see if I could work out my difficulties with this technique. I tied on a straight piece of 15 lb. mono because I was told that sinks better than a tapered leader, and my version of the Sharp Steelie because I thought I was out of egg patterns. I used a big pinch of biostrike shaped into a spindle because yarn indicators or big bobbers have been hard for me to cast. Well, the setup cast well and I ended up with two winter runs from the same hole. I'll never be skeptical of steelhead nymphing or Sharp Steelie again.


    My version of the Sharp Steelie just has a set of dumbbell eyes added so it sinks without split shot and the hook rides up.

    That is awesome and I'm thrilled it worked for
    you. Congrats - you made my day! Now go catch
    some more and have a ton of fun.
