Re: Nail knot or...

I make a tiny (1/8") loop at the end of my fly line using ten pound Berkely fused crystal superline and a uni knot. I make the loop and then secure it with the superfine. A drop of superglue secures it. Then I just tie on the butt of my leader to the tiny loop. Easy to attach, easy to detach. Alex

A hook straightened by a large fish is a badge of honor.

Re: Couple of good ones

Joe, There are many places to look for information about Euro or tightline nymphing, but I think that one of the best is troutbitten.com. Just look up "mono-rig" on Dom's site.

Re: Catskill cannonball step-by-step

The Cannonball, in all its manifestations, is a fantastic fly. It's beautiful and catches lots of fish. What more can you ask of a fly?

Re: Saturday opener

I agree that one native brown is worth a stocking truck load of pets.

Sounds like a fulfilling first outing, John.

Re: hooked fish

Good points, Ed. I should have been more specific: my answer addressed nymphs dead drifted near the bottom of a stream.

Re: hooked fish

I think that more often than not a fish hooked at the top of its mouth has been hooked by a timely strike from the angler. A fly in other parts of the mouth, or outside the mouth, suggests the that the fish hooked itself or that the strike was rather late.
