I finally located a little fishing hole in Clear Creek that a friend of mine has always bragged about-it's pretty productive for Clear Creek. He would never exactly tell me where it was, but I figured it out. I have a little ritual that I do when I fish there. Because I hate getting skunked, I start out by using a very light spinning setup and salmon eggs. This immediately gets me some action. After a couple of fish, the pressure is off and I switch to fly gear. It then slows down for me. I usually switch do a glo bug fly, figuring if they like salmon eggs on this stretch, they'll go for an imitation. Sometimes I will get impatient, though and I will smash a salmon egg on the glo bug or even put the salmon egg on the hook. Of course, the action will pick up. My brother always accuses me of cheating when I make flys "fishy". What do you all think? I always release them, if that makes any difference, but the problem is that if they take a "souped up" glo bug, they usually take the hook deep and I've lost a few fish that way (as in killed them).
