I have not tried this method of fishing in a long time and just wanted to hear what everyone had to say.

I was using 2-4 lb test pline, 9'6" BPS Float N' Fly rod, daiwa sol 2500
I was using the 1/16 Bullet Lures jigs with the 7/8" Pear shaped floats and thill wiggle floats.
It was alot of fun. Found out it works REALLY well for a certain other species too!

Key to the Floating Fly deal is the water temp. It really shines in mid to late Winter on highland reservoirs (deep clear rocky) when the fish suspend.
Water needs to be in the low 40's and colder for it to work well.
Favorite tecniques: Carolina Rig, Deep structure cranking, topwater.

It's quite boring to fish but it does work. I find that drifting (if you have any current at all) and not actually moving/working the bait with your rod works best most of the time.....maybe just a slight twitch every now and then.

If you down-size everything, you'll have one the best rigs for crappie, anytime, anywhere.

Jigman, nice looking jigs!!!!! I wished I had some talent like some of you guys. I bet that has to be one big rush to catch a nice fish on something you created.

I got into it a few years ago and you could only get 1 rod at Bass Pro.
Just as an FYI to the F & F guys, there is a simple formula for determining what weights a fly blank will cast when built as a spinning rod.... that opens you up to litterally hundres of blanks to build as a F & F rod. And gives you lots of length and multi pc. options. (1 pc all the way to 7 pc. depending on your storage needs)
Just a thought as it appears there is some real interest in this.
Anyone have a booster seat to fit a GMC pickup?
