How does peeing in the river prior to casting impact your cast and swing? Urine is high in iron and other minerals which are heavier than the mass and density of water. This can greatly impact the stick of your anchor being that the fly can get weighted down by the yellowy film and swing speed can be altered in the same way. Just sayin'

Yup, makes a big diff, as I always up-line by a size in line and rod weight to compensate for that ...:ray1: Really can be the catalyst between success and failure :thumb:

For heaven sakes! You put the rod under your arm, drop your waders to the thighs, and pee-- just barely covering the top of the waders. When you're in the groove you can't afford to get out of the water. Is it good for the water? Who cares, i'm concerned with how its effecting my fishing. Stay on track!

They used to post on the Deshutes that they would rather have you pee in the river than on the bank. Since I had to wear Depends during my prostate treratment for cancer I've found that they'er very handy to wear on the river if you don't over fill them. I prefer Walgreens brand and price. I've been told thet urine is sterile and the bad stuff is just s---t, couldn't prove it by me. Pan if it effects your cast and swing for those reasons you need a river with a much faster flow.

Pan,

Haven't your heard? True steelheaders don't drop their waders to pee in the river. Wastes valuable fishing time. Just stretch it up and over the top. You'll add a couple inches over time and be a more efficient steelheader. This is known as a win-win outcome. Can't believe you didn't know this already. I feel privileged to pass along the wisdom of NW steelheading legends who taught me all the critical things a serious steelheader needs to know.

Best way to fix a low holer, piss in the river and stink up the run.

Salmo, if I understand you right,you stating that I shoul stretch my junk over the waders instead of dropping my waders. I don't know about the guys you fish with, and I don't want to provide too much information, but I can barely clear my waders when I drop them. You guys are from another generation and perhaps are hung like horses. Good for you, man, good for you.
