    Re: Fish snagging techniques

    What is it like to fight a snagged fish?

    It seems like a good method to use if they're interested only in spawning.

    Any more tips?

    Looks like Dave and I not only posted at the same time, we both know where the snaggers hang out.

    Yeah but you forgotten that when you snag a fish like some people do, you can bring it to hand quicker and get your picture taken and put it into an Avatar.

    What do you mean by that Andy?


    The worst case of snagging I ever witnessed was at Mill Creek (just South of Watertown Lake O. trib). The creek is no more than 15' downstream from the only bridge of which I was standing on. Both sides of the stream bed were lined for about 50'. The ripping was so offensive I couldn't believe it. There was no hiding the intent. I only watched for 5 minutes. No fish were actually snag and taken, or I would have called DEC, not that they would show.

    We then drove up to the Black River below the dam/falls. That was even worse. I have a few photos & video I'll try to post. People were actually using bare hooks. Wow. I do enjoy fishing for Salmon in anticipation for the steelhead, but the season sure does bring out the worst.

    So GB, the best lessons you can learn is at the above 2 locations, they make the anglers in the LFZ look like try fly snobs.

    Re: Fish snagging techniques

    Another good method is to peg a bead on your leader about an inch or so above a bare hook. Hell if you do it with a fly rod you can even call it " flyfishing".

    Dude, stop with the jokes, you are killing me with your crafty sense of humor!!!!!

    It's apparent someone doesn't know how it's supposed to be done and you need more practice.....shame on you for snagging fish with bare hooks.

    Here is a link to get you started........but what does this silly show and popular angler/guide know.

    ALASKA RAINBOWS AND BEADS - YouTube

    So are tube flies also snagging tools and not real fly fishing because the imitation is not tied to the hook?
