To Swing...Or Not To Swing...

First seen here on Moldychum, we see that Steelie Mike has brought some light to the nymphing vs. swinging debate among steel hunters...

"What I have a difficult time with is the whole nymphing versus swinging flies debate. There is nothing more rewarding in steelhead fly fishing then skating up a fish in the summer or fall or swinging a big native in the winter. The beatdown you get from working, struggling and working for your fish makes the reward more fulfilling. If you could take the Prom Queen home would you? How about he girl next door, would you like to bang her? Well what if they both want it and you have to choose, would you take the prom queen home or the girl next door? Well personally I would take them both at the same time, but if I had to choose then the prom queen will she sitting on my face in no time."

Make sure you get take a look...full post HERE...

I am all about catching fish when I am able to get away from work and make it to the water. That being said, I LOVE fishing streamers and believe I will be swinging on chrome much more often when water conditions (especially temp) are condusive to doing so. There is nothing more cool than having a pissed off steelhead crush a streamer on the swing and then give you some hard head shakes, jumps, and runs....they leave no doubt that they were there and hungry.
