Re: Fishing a Riffle

I think the old sliding bead technique is an old bass fishing trick... using a bullet weight above the worm and letting it slide as it moves along the bottom...sure works with a plastic worm on bass... should work on trout.

Re: Generic Green Drakes

Wish I was floating along side of you, not happening in my neck of the woods yet, but soon the Watermaster will get its inaugural float on the Crooked... Great fly as always.

I had a friend give me an intro to Scandi yesterday but it was on a 6wt rod that I would seldom fish with on the rivers I fish most. Fun to cast, but ha...

Re: Winter Larva

Wayne... i've seen a couple vids of midges in the water and from stomach samples... I'm guessing the fish don't discriminate. I've caught plenty fish on curved Zebra midges, with silver beads :o so what does the fish think of that shiny head... I've not fished midge larva often enough out here, even...
