Okay, I am a newbie to flyfishing and am still getting the hang of all this, but here's one question that I can't seem to get a straight answer out of anyone on:
Per the regs, at Quartz Creek, is pegging legal?
I have had a couple different opinions given to me on this, but the way I read the regs, if the bead is within 2 inches of the hook, then it's legal to peg. Any other distance further away from the hook, it must be free-sliding.
Any input on this? I know there was a thread about this, but for the life of me, I can't find it.
Also, I know people (illegally??) peg the bead at about 4-6 inches, but at that point, isn't it lining, er, rather, simply pulling the hook to near the mouth, not technically legally hooking it?
Thanks so much for the answers. Also, please share (if you're comfortable) what you've used successfully at Quartz. I have my mottled red 8mm beads, but seemed to do better with the apricot 8 mm.
