Yeah, I did it. No, I don't feel as dirty as I expected, though I still feel like a shower. No, I didn't catch anything.
Anything is possible, come mid-winter.. a time of personal weakness, and profoundly fishless desperation.Yeah, I did it. No, I don't feel as dirty as I expected, though I still feel like a shower. No, I didn't catch anything.
Thats cool as hell. hope you get one! how big they get?A little context: I've been trying to catch burbot on a flyrod. It's been a challenge. They hunt right on the bottom, mainly feed at night, and use there sense of smell more than eyesight.
Researching them, I found that most successful anglers used glow in the dark lures tipped with some sort of bait. So this afternoon, after much deliberation, I headed over to the local fishing store in search of a smelly jelly to dose my big flashy streamers in. It felt like sneaking into one of those downtown pornshops. I pulled my hood over my head so I wouldn't be recognized! Bottle of crawdad scent in hand, I skulked around the store looking for glow in the dark materials. Suddenly i saw something that put a lightbulb over my head! Little glow in the dark spermies! They were perfect for incorporating into a fly! I mean it's frickin Burbot, you have to think outside the box! These things even have scent built in!
I recommend using an old full sink, and be prepared to lose a bunch of flies(and maybe a line) if you ever try Burbot. I'm going out tomorrow night with a gear guy that gets it done. Hopefully learn a thing or two.
