Classic Video: Dead Flies Don’t Swim

Here’s a great classic video from John Arnold of Scumliner Media. It features Mark Raisler, of Headhunters Fly Shop, talking about the massive Trico hatches on the Missouri River and what it takes to catch fish then. Lots of trout coming to the surface for millions of spinners does not equal easy fishing, that’s for sure.

  1. Cool video … always wanted to get to the Mo for this. Nitpicking but I have caught enough trout on tricos to know that fish WILL take your fish as it is dragged through their feeding lane (when the fly is submerged). Whether it is because there are still duns emerging or some other hatch is mixing in there is no question that it works often enough to make it worth trying.

  2. There are many interesting things in the world that do not depend on the will of people. It’s just that we think everyone’s strong.
    But we’re weak.
