    the hardware takes away from the fly aspect

    Most fishers that use this around here, fish with a spinning rod, bubble and one of these.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    I've used these for several years now in N New Mexico. I remember asking around what was working and I would always get the answer, "Pistol Petes." I didn't have a clue what they were until one old guy showed me one. Heck, they're nothing but a wooly bugger with a prop in front. They don't cast real well, like said, most people use a spinning rod with a bubble. One fellow I talked to was casting his out and letting it sink to bottom, very little action, and the trout would pick it up an run. I got mine from a place in Lawrence, Ks(Jayhawks) so no, the OSU cowboys didn't invent them! Luck, Glen

    Not all the fly shops in the E Sierra carry them, but ALL of the tackle shops do...deadly with a bubble. There are more than a few older fly guys towing them in still waters behind a tube.
