RE:What up with Boston Harbor?
Juro, you are definitely right and taking the discussion to a deeper level in terms of what variables are at play when big fish are involved. The emphasis on getting the fly to the bottom has helped in past situations, sometimes the intermediate line approach takes a lot of fish, but often not the brutes that you see flash every once in a while. I'll have to try Gregg's pogie pattern-I remember it at the clave as being distinctively different. The challenge with every fishing situation is to solve the riddle in front of you and frequently that means innovation. For me sometimes the excitement makes me forget to think through a completely different approach 'cause they're breaking right now !
