Default Re: Flies proved better catchers than Gulp Alive

Yeah, it's true!

Early season trout made me pick up my spin rod again. A young guy with a inline spinner and another spin guy using trout magnets were making me look like a fool with my fly rod!

I was mixed up and took my spin the next day with a 2 1/2" Gulp Minnow on a 1/32 oz jighead ....... and I caught a few stockie trout! Now I'm totally convinced that I could have caught them and more if I perfected my fly system a bit better!

Really, I had to tie some better flies and understand what the fly is doing in the water. I've found Nirvana now with my 3wt!

I'm catchin' gills like crazy now, and soon I'll try my 8wt for some carp!
