Thanks Justfish, you answered my question regarding what the PFBC would consider a legal or illegal catch.

Its not worth it, besides its a type of snagging called lifting..In pa its a fine for lifting..they use it on steels and out west where its allowed..A circle hook has to have the fishes mouth closed down to work properly..Been using em for salt for years..they don't have to swallow the bait just bite down and they are hooked..
On the other hand Tube flies are great to use as streamers and lg. steel head flies(spey,bunny)..I'm not to big on them on nymphs and such(sz.10 and smaller).
In pa anything hooked on the outside of mouth is considered being snagged whether intentional or not...

That's not what the Southeast office said. They said the rig with an egg and an inch behind is LEGAL except for spec. Regs.

Short video of the Moffitt System. Looks interesting, but a lot of things look good until you actually try them.

Lifting = the use of weight above your fly to get down to the fish and when your line comes into contact with the resting fish you "Lift" to engage the hook.

Lining = the use of an "across and swing" method to allow your line to enter the resting fishes mouth only to catch the fish on the outside of its mouth, on the opposite side of its body from the angler.

This sounds closer to lining than it does lifting to me.
