Allow me to point out a great article about fishing for "drop back" steelhead in the April issue of Woods N Water News. It was written by my good friend Mr. Joe Boomgaard, otherwise known here as the vile, Phlyphisher! This is his first article in such a publication, so congrats Joe!

Check it out...

Of course, this article should in no way be confused with Joe's famous techniques for "drop back salmon". Using a long stick to dig chinook carcasses out of a log jam is description enough---it doesn't warrant a full article! ;) :)

Thanks Steve.

As far as the elusive dropback salmon is concerned, if I remember correctly, you were the one who taught me that maneuver.

"This is a good way to keep your chum supply stocked. Now find me a long stick and remember to hold your nose..."

Hmm...

:cool:

Disgusting? Hey...I resemble that remark! Oh well, if the shoe fits...although Joe's appearence tends to drag me down with him. I mean, he is short and he drools a lot...

Speaking of dead salmon ,Joe, I'm suprised the infamous "Bear Creek Fungus Bunny" photo never made it's way on here! But then again, perhaps the description says enough...that was a true drop back salmon!

;)

Ah yes, the elusive dropback salmon. I believe he absolutley nailed a pink spawn bag, am I right Steve?

You had a helluva time tailing the fish since the flesh kept sliding off. :eek:



But alas, this one lived to spawn again...
:D

1000, after the flood and the decent number of Fall and Winter fish, guys are doing OK on drop backs right now.
