Ice Bobbers

by Bill Piatek

First time out with the 270 Nissin in quite awhile today. The stream is very shallow, narrow and brushy.

I tried something different today and used the smallest size of Thill ice bobbers and they really worked well. No splitshot, just a SBL-35 hook and a pair of salmon eggs. Didn't hang up once and roll cast pretty well.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” - Benjamin Franklin

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." -
Col. Robert Venables 1662

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
