Saw 15 rubes bottom bouncing the "Y" hole on the Thompson Sunday afternoon.....WTF?.....the sky has fallen
Different kind of bottom bouncing going on here WAYVIK. Hell, I used to bottom bounce this river many moons ago with a big 4" prawn! What they are doing is "flossing". Yes a 12' leader. Snagging essentially. Its not a species specific tactic but highly effective.Bottom bouncing on the Thompson was going on long before the "fly" became the tool. How you fish, as long as it is within the legal standard, should be of no concern except to the person fishing.
It is no wonder that the some of the fly fishing community is looked upon as snobs.
Most of us started with a worm, some just haven't reached further.
