I was just stunned by the call for using hawser line for trout fishing tippets-
what ever happened to sportsmanship?
sounds like the New Gen believes in "yank them in" like the old tuna boats
Next thing you know they will be advising 3 rods and 100 pound tippets to bring in them thar bigguns of a pound or more.
disclaimer-TETO


No, we just like to use the best tool for the job. I already knew you didn't do that, because of your love for 4' fly rods.



Pete- my avatar is a picture of me fishing for 6" brookies. I was using 3x tippet. Do you use like 17x in that situation?

If it makes you feel better, the rod is just a 7.5' 3wt.

Strike indicator as in the euphemism for bobber.


Got it.

For what it’s worth—and for those that don’t know, my advice (along with $1.00) will get you a free cup of coffee—I have seen feeding trout in the Bushkill C&R section “side step” a bobber… something about hanks of floating glo-bug yarn and stinging hooks must stick with them after a while.

Yet they continue to eat glo bugs?

Sorry, pete, but I find nothing "sporting" in exhausting trout because the tippet is lighter than necessary.

What are the regs?

When I go to catch one on a glo bug, I'd like to bring my centerpinner friend to catch one on a peach trout bead.

No offense, but trout are trout. And trout eat bright things, wild or stocked.

That was in my rooky days but if you tie 90 % knots-use 3 feet mono as shock absorber tippet
PLEASE,PLEASE explain to this dense old coot from the old school,how in the heck is a one pounder going to break four pound test tippet as our brethren have alleged witnessing????????
I will maintain a 1 pd to 1 pd ratio is all any reasonably experienced fisherman should need.

Limestone influenced stream… 100% catch and release… wild browns… get POUNDED 365 days a year.

Let me know when you’re going… I love to watch the newb’s.

In the least five foot and six foot is good enough for someone good enough but nine foot nymphing rods should be considered spearing and banned.

This has degenerated into a taunting festival-love it-hope no one gets bent.

They work on all of the limers in central PA, as well as SE limers like valley.

Spring and valley are both c&r, and both get absolutely pounded.

I almost don't even think I have any globugs in my box, but I am sure they would work.

Also, I've been at it about ten years.

I'd be happy to meet you. I love to meet the crotchety old know it alls that constantly sacrifice the ability to catch fish in order to live up to some stupid personal standards.

If you're curious why they work, trout will often take pebbles, bubbles, bug shucks, leaves, etc and reject it pretty quickly. It's pretty easy to set the hook before they do. If you have any other questions, I'd be happy to answer.

I should add that I have been unable to match my friend's numbers on spring. He uses a bead. The drift that it gets is fantastic. I'm pretty sure he could catch them on cigarette butts with the thing.

And let me guess, you plan to float them 18 inches off the hook of a #12 Patriot Dry fly and “OH you’ll never forget the time you were fishing this combo on -insert stream name here- on August back in 1980 with -name drop local fly shop owner here- and you two caught and released 90 trout… 25 of which took the Patriot.”

Ten years… my waders are older than that.

No, I plan to find a single fish, sight fish for it with a globug, catch it, then go fish more enjoyable methods. Actually, I don't plan on fishing the stream at all, as I'd have to cross a few others to get there.

Like I said before, they mouth and reject TONS of non-food items, and it's not hard to get them to take a globug.

Sorry, but anyone that makes blanket statements with "always" or "never" about fishing (like you did) is usually wrong.

Not saying I'd clean up, but I'm pretty sure it's possible to sting one or two. You don't care to admit that as a truth?

I know it hurts to have someone younger, thus completely undeserving of your respect, make a point that you don't like, but it doesn't merit the attitude. My position here is pretty solid.

What makes you "dizzy"? Spinning around too much to try to pat yourself on the back?

Slow day at the office. You know how much I like to argue with the "always" and "never" crowd...
