Default Re: Shore line Only

Another technique I've always known about but am never rigged up to try is the casting egg/ fly combo.

An acquaintaince years ago used to use heavy poppers for distance and tie a fly ahead as a "teaser" but with a longer leader, let the popper sit, and "dance" the fly for the same effect.

I have so few opportunities down here for plugging that it never occurs any more.

Good reminder for those who find breaking fish in casting distance (which will be me in a couple of years )

good add on : I like the Clouser because it gets down faster to the desired subsurface range when needed , Yes the Fly was the original presentation
