I've been tying most of my maribou's with bead chain eyes lately...

They ride nicely upside down and will foul hook less that way.

When i'm fishing for steelhead or salmon, i sharpen my hook lots. With the humpies, i let it dull a bit and don't sharpen it so much.

You should be able to feel a few of them, when you feel the line riding up on their backs, let a little slack by mending upstream so there is less tension.

You should of titled this thread, "How to hook less fish"...what a concept, huh!

Less than 2 months away....tons of fun!
