Re: Fly Fishing Alone in a Skiff - by Tom Mitzlaff
Some good advice. I use a bow mounted electric, which I run very slowly. If started and stopped suddenly, they will spook fish. I made a stripping basket from a leaf bag, available at hardware stores that is collapsible. An old garden hose, filled with some weights and taped at the ends together looks like a hula hoop and fits in the bottom to keep it in place. This works best in water a little deeper, and relies on longer casts. Great for working banks and edges, especially where there is some wind or tidal movement.
