Default 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.
