When The Bobber Goes Down....
according to Joe from Evolution Anglers,
STRIKE LIKE COBRA!
Spending 2 days in Twin Bridges with Joe and the rest of the crew at the Stonefly Inn got me really tuned up in reading the action of a strike indicator (aka starring at a bobber) This phrase is another one the hillarious one liners that Joe brings to the table as your progress through the day on the water. Some I can say here, other's you're just going to have to hear for yourself.
We both believe there are a lot of times when a fish picks up your bug, spits it out and you never knew it happened. Becoming one with your indicator, in a zen sense can make all the difference.
So back to the main point of this post. When in doubt, STRIKE LIKE COBRA when your bobber jukes, jumps or plain goes under and swims away. Set the hook and see what happens.
Because sometimes, there's a fish attached.
If you're thinking of going out to Montana this summer, you'd be crazy to not fish with the crew from the Stonefly. Utterly crazy.
The high water of early spring and summer is going to make July, August and September just pain nuts. Give them a call, you wont regret it.
