Re: Gar On The Fly?
I have actually had a bit of success with them.
I think there are two tricks that have helped
1. Use small trailer hook - almost like you would with a steelhead fly.
2. Use a softer action rod to help absorb the head shakes. It tends to pull the hook out of the bony mouth a lot less.
If you really get desperate, the old rope fly will produce and almost guarantee that a gar wont get off.
