    I'm new to the whole smolt/alevin thing.

    Why not just catch one with a butterfly net, stab it through the head with a size 10 tmc100 and catch a really big trout?

      Well scott, the problem comes down to ethics.

      If your fishing for trout, then the godliness route is to fish barbless, regardless of what the all knowing Alaska DNR tells you through the regs. So, the quandry of your question once again comes to presentation...casting and presenting an Alevin to a trout is really tough to do with a barbless hook!

      Then again, thats what those centerpin setups are really good for!

        Scott-rn, tha is just harresy and you should be punished harshly.

        Wouldn't a worm hook with the barbs on the back shank be a better tool? (did I say that out loud?)

        Out wandering a valley stream and got to observe some fry, found a couple dead so looked at them close. Battle creek is pretty darn close size 8 with very slight par marks up towards the head/eyes...

        Not enough water to hold trout but smolt/fry was working. Didn't get a close look but an occasional caddis might have been coming off. Did see a cream midge type adult maybe size 22....

        Good to get the waders wet.

          George, glad to hear I'm not the only one out fishing and not catching!
          G Smolt, would you mind sharing the material you used on the wing of your fly? The fly looks great!
          Thanks,
          Riley

            George,
            Just a little nyquil induced sarcasm. Been making my 6 year old tie up the alevin.

            There must be an advantage to staying home sick (like filling the bugger/llama box), cause nyquil sure ain't it.

                    NIce tie 900, how does that run? In my over-engineering mind it looks like it would run up side down with the down turned eye.

                      It runs right side up there is a strip of lead on the bottom part of the shank and the way the belly is makes it bottom heavy. Its produce fish on 2 of 2 trips used on

                        nice work with the epoxy, Fusion... your practice has paid off...

                        Are you using the clear epoxy or the tan/cream colored stuff?
