aknightinak I'd suggest you be sure to consult your regs. Not that Johnny Fins & Fur will be any the wiser since you're doing this at home (unless he reads Flytalk), but most places I've run into where bait is banned, so is scenting lures.

ya never know....maybe it's the dirt....:hehe:

Can anyone tell me exactly what "yuppy worm goo" IS??

Judging by this thread, I'd say Stone has not been using softex in a well-ventilated area....

juro The art of trickery with feathers does not require scent. The fish has several other impulses - vision, motion, sound and pressure waves, etc.

As a whole, the flyfishing community is quite successful in bringing fish to hand and as individuals, we improve with every outing. Using any kind of scent in this pursuit with the fly is uncommon, if not nearly non-existent. Therefore I would conclude that you could do just as well not doing that work thing by simply concentrating on the other senses the fish has.

Just my .02,

It may just be more confidence, but yeah, even in this heat I have been catching fish. I have to admit the fish are not much to brag about, but it is better than getting skunked.

The process of getting them done up is kind of gross and cumbersom, but it seems to be worth it.

Ooooo that smell!

You all know how a fish's sence of smell is great, right? (as the old adege (SP?) goes, a dog can smell 1000 times better than a person and a fish can smell 1000 times better than a dog!)

Well, for more luck with those new flies, I have been taking them and putting them in a closed coffee can with a worm and some dirt to try and get that yuppy worm goo all over them.

Then, I clean them off with a light washing under the faucet and put them in the fly box. That way, more than just the look is going to attract those big fella's...
