This sounds like he is using something such as smelly jelly every time he "swipes" and is likely illegal since the lake is regulated as an artificials only water. He is benefitting from something other legal anglers are not and should probably be reported.flyfishcolorado said:First off if you go make sure you watch a guy I like to call the Doctor. He's about 70 years old looks like he's been in the wind the last 25 of it and where's a trench coat. Now what makes the doctor special is he uses an orange sponge to fish with but everytime he goes to cast the fly its somehow wiped onto something he has in his coat. Fishing could be slow but once the magical swipe is made the Doctor catches fish.
