Lets not forget about the schmuck on the east side of the river, Yup, the guy with the chain link fence all the way down to the river. as well as the guy who uses barbed hooks, becouse they are stronger than non barbed hooks. "sorry, i forgot to crimp it", while im at it, how about casting in sequence, it would make every thing so much easier.

Tamahi is the biggest joke on the river, not only can you snag your fish, but you are sight fishing and picking out the fish you want to floss. These Fish will not travel through the white water, but travel through the same tamahi travel lanes, which are usually along the shore line. So many people taking advantage of these fish, But I did watch one very good fisherman for a half hour and he landed 2 coho short floating away from the gong show, good job buddy! ;D

Really a new LimitKiller... I thought if gone the name could not be used like Hockey Jearsy's of Greats. Well, LimitKiller, you're following in the footsteps of a great second only to Sanderson. :drunk: :wallbash: :drunk:
Have fun, Jason.

Welcome to the forum Scale Hunter ........... I know this was your first post but I do have to comment on your statement.

I also use barbed hooks rather than the factory non-barbed hooks. And yes, IMO they are stronger than the factory non-barbed hooks. It is perfectly legal to fish with a factory barbed hook as long as I remove the barb when required .......... and I always do.

I believe your statement assumes, without mention or fact, that this person (in the GAMMY vs OWNER HOOK THREAD, wasn't removing the barb of their hook.

Thanks in advance for your further consideration.

OK I know this is not going to go over very well but here goes. I believe the biggest problem right now is the sockeye fishery, why you ask, nobody knew how to bottom bounce or floss before, so now it's ok to fish that way anywhere. If no one is going to enforce it , and by it I mean the freshwater regs, then why bother buying a license
and the appropriate tags when it really doesn't matter!!!!! EDUCATION EDUCATION EDUCATION!!!!!!!! THX my rant is over. B

I may be setting myself up here but here goes... I was fishing just below Tamahi on the other side of the river and when I do take the gear out I almost always sight fish. I don't use a long leader and the distance from the float to the lead is according to the depth of the pool I am fishing. I hooked a lot of coho on the weekend but it was all from sight fishing not a single one was snagged. I think that it is a completely acceptable way to fish, you don't base the hit on if your float drops below the surface you can simply see the coho move to the presentation and take it. I was fishing about 5 feet infront of where I was standing.

Long weekend i was up at tamihi on the monday. I watched from just upstream of the bridge and could see 4 young men and a couple adults floss the pockets in one section. These young men looked to know what they were doing well. Usually when i see flossers/snaggers they have levelwinds but these guys had pins. I guess you really do get a better drift on a pin huh? ::)

Good point anyone can spend a ton to look the part, but still have absolutely no clue on proper sportsman ediquette. Kinda like the weekend warrior cowboys that flock to merritt every year or the city cowboys at the cloverdale rodeo.
Cheers,
Crazy D
