Rising up.

Probably running this dropper/dry deal into the ground here, but its effectiveness continues to amaze. Yesterday I put the dropper on a carp cruising in 2 - 3 feet of water. The hare's ear was only suspended 12 inches below the tarantula and this fish rose to eat it. I've assumed the nymph dropper needed to be at or within a couple of inches of the bottom to be effective. Not necessarily true.

I honestly did not expect the take here. The fish was little more than a fuzzy shadow easing along a steep bank.  Then the shadow paused directly under the tarantula and took on the distinct features of a fish as it came up through the water column to get at the nymph. The tarantula trembled slightly.

He was the only fish of the day. He declined the photo op.

Nope.

Dude, you are still WET WADING?!!? You have at least a month left, maybe two.

Ty said...

Yeah, still wet wading. But I'm on the edge of that. Water is getting kinda cold.

After reading your post recently, you have convinced me that I need to give more attention to the dropper set-up. I have known for some time that is an effective set-up but just never take the time to use it. I am convinced that this method is truly awesome when used correctly and you have master the technique. Thanks for sharing

Bill, I've used the dropper set up for trout, bass,panfish and just about every other fishing situation you can think of. Good arrow to have in your quiver of tricks.
