Well, who better to teach a bait fisherman about fly fishing, than the one and only Hank Patterson. So Catherder, this one is for you. Enjoy.
I actually have a semi funny story along those lines. I went to Sportsmans Warehouse to get some fishing supplies. I was going up to Strawberry the next day to fish with a friend out of his boat. We were using gear and vertically jigging. Anyway, in addition to buying some stuff for the Strawberry trip, I was low on Fluoro tippet for flyfishing and bought a spool. I tossed the entire bag of stuff I bought into a tackle bag I took on the boat. In the process of the day fishing up there, I used a dab of smelly jelly on a jig and tossed the bottle in the bag. Unfortunately, the bottle was not tightly closed and it leaked all over, including onto the spool of tippet. This situation was not immediately noticed and when I was ready to head up to the stream, I discovered my smelly conundrum. Fortunately, I had another spool I could use, but I could have had some explaining to do if I didn't notice the problem until I got up on the stream and got checked by a CO.Yes- just because one might keep his flies in a worm soaked Styrofoam cup that has a slight aroma of Dr Juice also does not mean he is fishing with bait.
