Just curious, does anyone here every use flies while ice fishing? i would think a weighted bugger-type streamer would work well, especially if tied with marabou that appears to "breathe" underwater with even the slightest movement. it could actually be tied heavy enough to sink well and stay down, and detecting strikes would be the same as when fishing jigs. ken mentioned fishing with flies, but also mentioned the problem of how you would be able to rig it to keep it down...which would be difficult without decreasing your strike sensitivity. fish generally dont hit flies to hard, but rather inhale them. i dont ice fish, so i dont know all the details, i was just curious if it would even be worth trying...
