The Swang

#31
huge ginormous mends, especially right when the fly lands, because there aren't any fish that take a fly oriented incorrectly and it is nigh impossible to do that with anything except a skagit line. And any cross-currents on the water surface, gotta mend over those, too - needs to be a tightline, always cast at 45 degree, fly moving at a perfectly even speed, always mended to get the right presentation. Mend mend mend a lot during the swing, you know, like the books say. mend. Otherwise, what would the books have to write about? :ray1:

Justin,

I would trade EVERY POS hatchery fish you have caught in SW Washington, while dredging, (and every one you are going to catch for the rest of your life) for ONE native springer steelhead on the surface. Now you get to fish for skamania turds. Possibly not the best yardstick to measure the steelhead world with. ;)

William, you are entitled to your foolish opinions. You can have your POS clearwater Hatchery fish, I have my POS SWWA fish. I can catch Mucho on the swing, and you can have your nil, 1 or 2 fish a season. I'm happy for you.

If you are using a floating line, the fly better be skating, otherwise why use a floating line? What's the point? Floating line, sunk fly... Genius. How bout sunk fly and clear intermediate tip? When a fish takes the fly on the swing, does it feel different with a sunk line or a floating line? Nope. Takes are takes, some vicious some light, both are encountered on floating and sinking lines. So I hope all your fish are caught on the swing using a floating line and a skater. Otherwise you are defeating the purpose of your floating line. Fish the way you want to fish on the swing and I'll fish the way I want to fish on the swing. The grabs will feel the same, (I'll have a allot more of them)and isn't that what it is all about?

To answer your question justin, thats not what it's all about. it's all about trying to force your fishing opinions on others, and looking down on people who don't fish the exact same way that you do, is it not?

TFG, I'm just going to call it as it is... you're a jack ass. :) You have no clue as to what you're talking about. You have made this clear through your long term continues statements and obvious limited steelhead experience. :( Will has caught more fish, on the C-Water, (nates and brats) since August, on a floating line and hair wing, than you have all year on your "gay" tip and large profile fly (I'd bet money). We would love to have you come over here and show us how it’s done; I'll buy the beer. Your statement that is doesn't feel any different between a floating line take and a tip take, and how it really comes down to #'s proves how much you "don't get it" and have never experienced it. You, my friend, are the fool. Since you lack the needed common sense to be embarrassed, I will go ahead and feel the brunt of the embarrassment for you, I’m nice like that. If you have never left the west side, and are cocky, you’re bound to have the mentality you have. Broaden your horizons and discover your how much you have to learn; you will be a better person and steelheader. :D

Had that come from someone else it might actually mean something, but since your such a tool, I could care less what you say.
