Had a chance to get out and dome some fishing, headed to the Nestucca fished 4th bridge area. I started fishing bobber/shrimp with out any bites, switched over to some cherise yarn with some scent, and landed a nice 8 lb native. Shortly after i switched over to flame orange yarn and landed another nice 10 lb hen. Both fish were caught using bobber and yarn, released unharmed :) Look at the home made float :rolleyes: it works , but i understand the lol's that its gonna get :) 1/2 of a 1 oz WS float . Sorry bout the cell phone pics.

:) As long as it floats right. Not actually a taped up cork bobber but close, its the bottom half of a 1 oz west coast float. If you look close enough next to my boot, is my bobber stop any guess to what i used?

Nice! I love to see fish caught with some handy work/ self made improved gear. Camo bob looks stealthy and I thought I might be the only one to use a corky for a stop in a pinch OK maybe not ,but. It still gives me a little hope that the out of the norm can pay off now and again.

Perhaps a corky with a toothpick jammed in it?

On the other side of my foot , you can see the rubber band i used for my float stop. I only use this method when im fishing 5-6' deep. I dont like to reel the rubber band into the eyes of my rod :) I fish goofy sometimes, but never overlook the important factors to catching steelhead, presentation presentation presentation.
