Got out with snag today..
The water was much different than my last flooded report..the high flows had scoured the stream bed, and it was a beautiful sight to see the clean cobbled bottom, although coupled with the nice flows it made spotting fish much tougher than usual even in the crystal clear water..

At one point I got a good lesson on why you should de-barb your hooks, and use a net when fishing 2 fly rigs..

When you catch fish like that there are no problems!  Well done.

Did you use the loop  with mono trick and hold the eye of the hook down and a quick jerk backwards?  This works pretty well if the jerk is fast and hard.....no time for wimpy work.

thought about using the mono loop but the whole bend of the hook was inside my finger so it had to be rotated out..there was nothing for it but to just grab it with the hemo's and do the deed..

Suckage 'c; I would have just poked a hook that small thur the skin on the other side and clipped it off p;- Why were ya'll using red midges anyway, you know they won't catch any fish, especially with a red bead on them :P

There's more B.S. in fly fishing than there is in a Kansas feedlot.
