Thread: Scents on flys

  1. Default Scents on flys

    In a previous post I questioned the use of egg patterns and one of the responses was that there was no harm in using egg patterns as long as they were not dipped in salmon egg juice. Is this the same as using the Berkley line of scents and what's wrong with using the scents. My fishing is primarily catch and release; but, occasionally if my family gets a hankering for fish to eat, I will keep enough for a fish fry.

    Side note: I think this is a great forum; but, I am surprised by the lack of activity. Maybe it because I have so much to learn and I am just eating this stubb up and the rest of you guys/gals are pros. If so, bear with me.

    Hey there. I personally don't use scents on my flies but would have to say that if the regulations don't prohibit it, I guess there is no harm done. I don't know how I feel about it actually.

    As for us being pros? Not me. Sometimes this place is poppin, other times it is dead. I would suggest having several backup sites. If you want you can p.m. me for some good sites to visit.

    Hey there,
    I think it has alot to do with "ethics". Many fly fishers only want a natural presentation, meaning they want their "bug" to smell like a bug does smell. Like nothing.

    can't say that i've tried them on flies. however i've tried them on regular plastic worms and such and didn't care for them. if you do use them the way that i read to be best was to actually rub some on your hands that way it helps to mask any scents you might have on your hands.(fishing partner last year and sun-tan lotion) and yes believe it or not that will have a big effect on wether or not your catching.

    i feel go with what you feel comfortable with. scent or no scent does it make that big of deal. no different than a hunter using a deer rub scent to cover up his/her own smell and help attract a deer?
