Re: Best dropper knot

That's good to hear :)

OK, then I will go for floating line. There are two black marabou lures in the the box. I will try them too then.
Here's the bunnies :)

Re: Best dropper knot

I'll have a go at your suggestions for sure. Definitely try night fishing with some black bunnies, glow in the dark flies and so on. What do you think of fishing with the Lumiline, do you think it would spook them? Otherwise I only have a barstool intermediate that's way too heavy. I will investigat...

Re: Do you wax on or wax off?

I just ordered some wax from the Feather Bender. I'm looking forward to try it out :pirate: :)

Re: Best dropper knot

I haven't done any night fishing yet but I will try that. I don't think there's a bottom plug and I haven't seen any cormorants there. I tied a couple of white bunny cats yesterday and tonight I will make some black ones. It was easy and fun to tie. I have got quite a few of your damsels in various ...

Re: Best dropper knot

They stock rainbows and once in winter, brook trout but not this winter because they couldn't get any brook trouts. In the cooler period they usually stock around 200 kg every two weeks or so. Otherwise there are small roach and perch and some pike. I'll have a try with the bunny and lure to see if ...

Re: Best dropper knot

Thank you for fly suggestions. Damsels should work even though I haven't caught any fish on them yet. There are a dragonflies around but I haven't seen Damselflies, I guess they are harder to spot but the nymphs are quite similar between them, aren't they! I have seen mayfly nymphs, Ephemera vulgata...

Re: Best dropper knot

I will use that tactic from now on. It makes good sense to go to them instead of them to me. How about the size? Is size 8-10 hooks good or should I go bigger or even smaller? That they are close to the edge is very true, I've had three of them about a rod length or two out or even less at one occas...

Re: Best dropper knot

Thanks Paul! I'll keep that in mind. Yes they are in the box in addition to the ones I have tied. I need to get some white zonker strips, I do have fluorescent orange ones already if that's any good. Would size 10-8 be useful? Good tip about the sequence of hopper and shipman. I understand that it's...

Re: Best dropper knot

I use a Rio trout leader, 2X, I believe SG ring knotted with Eugene bend. 15 cm Dropper 4x and 4-5 feet tippet 3x. A couple of point flies are now residing on the bottom and one in a tree so far. It's a little bit windy, restricting the directions for casts because of the trees. No takes, no rises, ...

Re: Best dropper knot

Thanks Lars and Paul. I think I will start out with two flies then, the dropper from the tippet ring. I have an idea of making a perfection loop or lefty loop and larkshead it into the ring, that might make it stand out more from the tippet. Then I can see what kind of loop control I have. Last time...
