Fly stick? Is this a term I'm not familiar with?

If I had a 7-0 day, I'd contemplate suicide. :lol: Least you hooked up.

You have to give chase man. I`ve gone 200 yards on that crick before. But yer right, a 6 is a bit small for where you were standing. Yep, it was my punk arse up`er. Lost mine too. PIGS,BTW.

So what kinda set up were you using and what flies? :think: I like learning more about what kinda fly setups different people use. I'm tempted to try my 6wt.. but it kinda scares me with that light of rod. I really just need a better reel.

Flyline ---> Swivel ---> 10lb maxima ---> like 5 Pinch wieghts ---> size 4-1 hook with Peach Yarn. Thats what Worked for me today. Held up pretty good. Cast around with it. Look for fish. Dont hook anyone..

It`s not easy. I fished like that when I was his age too. I was very excited to learn the nail knot. It actually isn`t all that bad, you just can`t reel up past the swivel with a fish on.

That kinda sounds like a professional flossing rig.

Never drifted A??:rolleyes: flossed:rolleyes:

I think it`s funny, if they have bait on they are drifting if we have a fly on we`re flossing?? This buck bled out from a terminal hook up, on said floosing:rolleyes: rig.

It`s called drifting! I`ve seen you guys around, yer buddies have videos illustrating the "fastest drift in the west" and nobody said this kinda soup to them. It`s cool, it`s easiest to clown what you don`t know how to do.:clap:

At least you were using flies.. ;):lol: Nah, I've drift fished with a fly rod a couple times though. Works good.

I need a setup like yours!
