#328272 I need advice for fishing with beads and spawn sacks

Posted by Berg on 14 November 2015 - 03:48 PM



I think 2" would be good. Personally go about 1.5". Also make sure your hook is not smaller than your bead or the bead will kind of guard the hook.

My first-ever steelhead on the pin. I had hooked into 3 others this week and lost them in a variety of ways. The shock-absorption of the long rod is amazing, and learning to effectively apply the drag manually must be something that comes with time. Caught it on a Huron trib with an 8mm orange bead. Was alone and had to set him on shore to get the shots, then revived him and let him go.


Here it is, a male of around 3-4 lbs if I'm not mistaken:

#325784 Fly Fishing vs. Regular Fishing...Help

Posted by Berg on 29 July 2015 - 01:39 AM

Flies are just hooks with fur, hair, or synthetic materials tied and/or glued around them and can be used to imitate anything from an insect to a mouse to a minnow.


There are lots of "flies" that probably have enough weight on them to cast with regular/conventional spinning gear. Some flies have lead or tungsten weights tied into them, along with copper wire around them, to help them to sink. A big fly called a Clouser Minnow could probably be cast using light spinning gear pretty well, and could be fished by just reeling in and basically jigging it around. There are probably many other patterns you could do this with as well.


As FF said, with enough weight added to your line you can fish any weightless fly under a float or bobber as well, just as you would a hook and worm.
