Missing Strikes?

Rate this topic

Now you got that $ 3000 .- OUTFIT plus $ 60000.- SUV,

 

or you spent $ 4000 .- minimum on that lodge fishing trip,

 

convenced your wife that all that was a special for $ 400.-

 

to avoid nasty court divorce-proceedings and all you got then are missed

 

strikes after you arrived at your superior destination.

 

I had my share on missed strikes. I even thougt about integrating

 

fiber - optic in my fly line and leader with a micro camera to set

 

the hook at the right moment.

 

The cheapo way would probably be to tye foam flies out

 

of "Baited Mouse Glue Traps" ready available at WAL-MART.

 

One might need special "unsticky gloves and flyboxes to deal with them,

 

but missed stikes could be a thing of the past!

There is only one thing I hate more than a missed strike and that is to have a fish on solidly for 5-10 seconds - then "gone".

I'm thinking I have to find thin wire hooks with a larger gape. Having that problem with snook down here on the beach.
