A Dirty Trick for Catching Trophy TroutJuly 18, 2017
Well I can't say that I am proud but I do this every once in a while. Its basically a "bobber and a jig" on a fly rod and can be incredibly effective for big trout that prefer to ambush baitfish or "critters" rather than chase them. My preferred methods for catching fish are dry fly fishing, dry droppers, swinging streamers, stripping streamers, nymph fishing, and.... this trick. All in this exact order.
I hope you find this useful and it salvages a day of fishing sometime with a nice fish. It can be of special importance during periods of high and/or turbulent water as well.
The setup that I am fishing in this video is as follows:
Rod - Sage X 590-4 (my GO TO for larger streams)
