What was that kind of fishing called where youd tie the fly next to the bare hook and people called it snagging?

By people you are referring to the PFBC. I know what you're talking about but the name escapes me.

edit: Moffitt System

Same as fishing a trout bead in NY.

I use trout beads both in NY and here for local trout. I use them pegged just above a fly. Especially when fishing over recently stocked fish. The bead represents an egg therefore giving the fish two choices to take. Only if the fly hook is on the outside of the fish's mouth can you tell whether it took the bead or the fly. Sometimes in NY I will use a bead and bare hook, but most of the time I use a stonefly or bugger too. One thing I do know, trout beads work and they are very inexpensive.

There is a type of sight fishing called lifting , i'm not sure what the rig consists of but you more or less visually float the fly into the fishes mouth.

I'm not sayin nobody does that. But you could do that with anything visible.

More often, the idea is that, rather than just drifting it into an unknowing fish's mouth, the fish actually, you know, mistakes it for a food item and intentionally eats it. A bead makes a good imitation of a single egg. Most of our egg flies, even smallish glo bugs, are a little big to represent a single trout egg.

You can put beads right on a hook, just like you can put a hookless fly up the line. Thus the Moffitt system is a separate discussion from beads. I was answering to the beads only, not the Moffitt system.

@sandfly, I use beads and I don't lift or snag and I prefer not to be able to see the fish. As with any method of fishing, one can lift and snag all day if he is inclined to do so. I just think trout beads are another type of bait. Although they are not "flies" and are not legal to use in FF only sections on the Salmon River I still like them. And they do pick up the bead thinking it's an egg. I have one fishing buddy who hates beads and is against using them, but everytime I catch a nice trout I make it a point to exclaim "blue trout bead" or whatever color I was using.

if a ff only or delayed harvest section what is the difference between a bead and small glo bug?

one is leagal and one is not...correct. am i talking/typing to myself?

but really, beads are not bait. i really don't fish them much but think that the rules should omit molded eggs.

i learned this after my buddy asked me what i was catching em on...i answered trout beads, he said walk back to the bank and read the sign...oops. gotta leave the beads in the truck when going to the delayed harvest sections.

Ok, please tell me who has the vision to track a 6mm trout bead that is 30'+ away and 3-5' deep? Seems like a poor choice for lifting.

I really like trout beads for trib fishing. Egg flies are lame to tie and trout beads are a nice alternative. Pretty realistic imitation too. I have been satisfied with my catch rates while using them. Like the other guy said, they are real cheap, like $2-3 for 50.

superman, eagles...

like my buddy says, if he can see em he can catch em.

you can always tell a guy that is lifting, he is hooking up every 5 minutes but rarely lands one.
