Hook, since there is a huge difference bewteen 'bottom bouncing' as it has come to be know on the Fraser and the 'other' kind known to those who steelhead, I would prefer that you use the term 'flosser' to describe what you talking about. Many of us 'drift fisherman' who have been 'bottom bouncing' for steelies for years on many streams use ethical tactics. I just don't want any new users on this forum (and there are a few!) to get the wrong idea. There are many previous posts on this subject and I would encourage everyone who visits the Fraser this year to make an informed decision on how to fish for salmon.

Cheers,

BGM

That's very interesting that you mentioned that, because I think I may be one of the "new users" that you are referring to. I was recently steelheading with some seasoned pros on the Island and was shocked to see that they were bottom bouncing. They were using super short leaders (1 foot), but my experiences are basically limited to this forum and I was under the impression that this tactic was taboo. I'm starting to understand that there are two very different types of "bottom bouncing." I actually PM'd a knowledgeable member of this forum today to clear up this issue for me because I figured it would cause a big mess if I asked publicly.

Jason Tonelli from Pacific Angler also wrote up a very well written article on this subject in BC Outdoors Fishing magazine!

Butttt.............I think this thread is supposed to be about Jack springs on the fraser river....

Sooo....how'd everyone make out for the elusive 77cm or below early run fraser river Chinook? lol
