Not really. It happens. It was the first time getting skunked from a tube there. Normally it kicks ass. It can be rough from shore though so a tube is the way to go. I just went to the canyon and slaughtered em in there. The basics usually work. Chironomids in different colors, copper johns in different colors, prince nymphs, etc.that's rough man... but yeah I'm still going no matter what, and I have a float tube that I will be using. what did you use for fly's?
I'll have a roughly 13-14ft piece of just regular 10lb mono. Then I'll slide a slip indicator on (they sell them at the spinney general store,trust me you'll want some type of sliding indicator) and then I'll tie on a couple feet of 3x flouro and attach my first fly. Then I'll do a couple more feet of 3x flouro and attach a second. Sometimes I'll do another piece of 3x and attach a third fly. Usually I'll just suspend the flies and let em hang. Once in a while I'll pull the rig a few feet and then let the flies settle back down. Or just do a little twitch every couple minutes. It's a long rig but it allows me to fish all depths.(up to 20ft at spinney) You can simply adjust the indicator to adjust depth. When you get out there, you'll want your bottom fly a foot off the bottom. You can hook a pair of hemostats to your bottom fly and lower it down to see how deep it is and then adjust your bobber accordingly. You may also want to try some dries or whatever depending on what's going on. Also like other guy said, streamers can be very productive.how is everyone setting up there lines...as far as the double nypmh rig and all that and what about retrieve?? also what time should I be fishing for what since my goal is trout and Pike?
Pike will hit flies. Sometimes they'll hit trout flies. If you really want pike, fish streamers .There can be a lot of factors but what do what I said and try it in different depths. It's not too complicated and that's pretty much how everyone does it.so looks like there's a lot of factors then...I'll probly be asking the herd out there for tips probably. I'm guessing no pike on the fly?
