Fishing for trout is fun.

Just shows how inventive folk can be, great video.

But don't get caught out that this is fly fishing, it is not. According to the regulations, it is about the rod and reel you use and the difficulty level imposed by using them. My brother got caught out this way by using spinning gear and a fly on a fly fishing only lake.

This is a great video, thank you.

Good point dt. However it does say on page 108 of the synopsis:

fly fishing … angling with a line to which only
an artificial fly is attached (floats, sinkers,
or attracting devices may not be attached
to the line when fishing is restricted to "fly
fishing only”).

I do think this is an inadequate description and as stated, my brother was ticked off for using a spinning reel with a fly on a fly only lake. And a lot of this is really common sense, ask any fly fisherman the definition of fly fishing and you will find a common thread. I do not wish to mislead in any way here and would like further comments.

Yes, but you must read this definition:

artificial fly … a single-pointed hook that is
dressed only with fur, feathers, hair, textiles,
tinsel and/or wire, and to which no external
weight or external attracting device is
attached. Two or more hooks tied in tandem
is not permitted. Where gear is restricted
to artificial flies, floats and sinkers may
be attached to the line. Where areas are
restricted to “fly fish only” floats and sinkers
may not be attached to the line or fly.

Time to get out the forensic textile investigators I think, been to a fashion show recently, what does not count as a textile here. And a thick wire is not a weight, so no need for a bead head to add weight.

Oh yes back to common sense....

dont be hating on chironomid fishers. most lakes are artificial fly only and you can have floats or weights on your line.
there are very few flyfish only lakes in the province that you cant have anything on your line. i thinks its something like under 10 lakes that have flyfish only
