Are you fly rod guys fishing anything besides clear low pressure stretches? I'd love to see somebody with a fly rod come go toe to toe with conventional gear in the areas that I regularly fish. I'm honestly not sure how a fly rod angler would effectively fish the areas that I catch a lot of my fish in. Too deep and swift or relating to heavy wood cover.

I have caught 6 over 20 one of those were from Table Rock lake. I use hand made Jigs with gami’s or black nickel Matzou’s for hooks I dress the streamer with a mixture of grey craft fur and SLF  I swing this fly on a sage 9.6 5 wt z axis that I built with single foot Titanium guide. The trick is to fish like your nymphing you must use a system that composes a castable system of strike indicators After the initial drift throw some slack in the line which turns it from a horizontal presentation to a vertical one The jig allows a more accurate presentation as it slowly meanders along the current seams and holes I have a jet so it’s a simple matter to go up and run back up for a do over. Well I’ve just condensed 35 yrs of fly fishing for smallie’s BTW I also use spinning gear with 2 Legend Elites  I built I’m never too proud to pick up a Ned rig when necessary  Using jigs and strike indicators will add a new level to your game
