When you chum with corn do you flavor it with salmon egg juice?

Of course not. How could you ever suggest such a thing??? What a despicable and cynical insinuation that an ethical fly fisher would do that.

I use radioactive isotopes of Cobalt I stole from the waste storage pool at the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant. The fish surface pretty quickly (belly up, of course) and I just pick up the ones I want.

Holy Cow! That?s a football of a brookie! Amazing specimen! Had to put up a wicked fight. Thanks for sharing. Hope it doesn?t glow in the dark now. I?ve yet to get the fly line wet still. Hoping to do so sometime after this blizzard moves through. Ughhhh
