Fallfish are always fun

Took a walk down to the Connie to fish for some fallfish this morning. I got a couple and also caught a bluegill. I wanted to take a break from catching small trout and go catch some big fallfish. They always put up a nice fight and there's so many of them! Anyways I put together a short video from all the fish I caught today.

That there is just plain old fun. Your technique is remarkably similar to mine...dead drift across the current and let it swing just a tiny little bit when it starts to get downstream of you. They'll pick it up a lot of times when the current just starts to grab it and it starts to swing.

They hit the fly hard right when it starts to swing. It's always an excitement when they take it!

Ah, the mighty chub - they sure put a bend in the rod! I've caught several in the 3-4lb range this year on everything from deer hair poppers, mice, streamers, and pheasant tail cdc emergers.

Whats the difference between the fall fish and the creek chub? How do you identify?

Nice job! You got me all cranked up to go out there and stick some big fallfish. Good footage ...... You can tell they were smashing it when the takes were as evident as they were on your video. Chub or BIG minnow (call them what you want). I can get past the sounds that they make. They are just a whole lot of fun on the fly rod. Thanks, Zach for sharing your video with us.

How do you tell them apart? A chub poops on you once while you unhook it and a fallfish poops on you twice.

By their latin names?
Semotilus atromaculatus (creek chub)
Semotilus corporalis (fallfish)

Since they're both chubs, I usually just stick with that.

Zach, nice video but do yourself a favor and carry your rod backwards. It'll save you a broken tip !

Got Chub
Thanks Zach for posting the vid. That is great practice for trout as well. They made sport of carp fishing. Why not chubs. I can see it catching on. Shirts and hats
Chub poop...lol

Stenonema - To get fly fisherman to start fishing for fallfish, we can just say that they are a new found species called "silver trout"! EVERYONE would join the chub(Silver Trout) extravaganza!

I can feel it coming...... The 20" +/- 3" fallfish thread. All catches are to be ocularly estimated to the best of the angler's ability. Of course to be positively critiqued by the forum members. All kidding aside, if you never tangled with a decent size fallfish, get out there to your local WW stream or river .... find a good looking piece of water with decent depth .... throw a big old ugly wooly bugger or Clouser or something that will gain attention and hang on! Be careful, you may become converted to a chub junkie in short order. Oh yeah, if you happen into a good one don't forget to start that new thread! Have fun!

I"m so doing it. I got the camera and the rod in the Jeep. Silver trout or freshwater tarpon Chubasaurus look out.
Seriously though, I fish for them just like I would for trout. They knock the crap out of rubber legs. You know, the wooley bugger that isn't wooley, it's rubber. Which leads me to think, why not call the pattern Rubber Bugger.
