Ha! Being a bass guy, I sometimes forget folks fish for other things! Thanks for the great article PB!
And, Wow, if that was a "beginners guide", I can't imagine what his advanced techniques would be. Skipping a fluke in the space between a moored boat and the dock is a little tricky. And fishing it Wacky Style sounds tricky as well. I thought the darting motion it gets when rigged Texas style, like BB's pic above, is what triggers the strikes. I suppose you'd use the same hook for Wacky and Nose Rigging though. I just might give them both a try the next time I'm out.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
