  • Which should an expert like me use.

    I can't decide whether I should use a pink Trout Magnet or a round Salmon egg this weekend to fly fish with on Lake Allatoona, any suggestions?

    A trout magnet under a popper will catch more bream, small bass (and maybe a few crappie) than you can shake a stick at!
    The first thing scripture tells us about man is that we're made in the image of God. The second thing it says is that man should have dominion over the fishes of the sea.

      Where's the canned corn on that list?

        I know nothing about Lake Allatoona. Are there trout in it?

          No, there are no trout in Lake Allatoona. In fact, some argue that there are no fish in Lake Allatoona.

            This time last year there was no water in Lake Allatoona.

              I would try a salmon egg on a trout magnet trolled behind a banjo minnow while eating bread nuggets. Best fished on a 2 wt 14' Eagle Claw spey rod using a half and half line (front half floating, back half sinking).
              These brook trout will strike any fly you present, provided you don't get close enough to present it.

                Nothing but carp and mud cats in Allatoona ---and they'll eat anything. You can't go wrong. You might want to try some of that Chuck Morris Dry Fly Stink Bait --available in the Fly Shop at Walmart.

                  Then I suggest using the wild oatmeal sport-O-truse dog
                  and cat hair pleakh jtocs in obscure tree rot. That's a
                  great pattern. If you don't have one I'll gladly send you
                  one for free, but the postage and handling will run you
                  $1,326.99. Is there tax in Georgia? If so, don't bother.

                    Trolling comes to mind.

                      Since TOM sort of gave away my secret. Try some of Chuck's dry fly floatant on your flies.

                      I thought I made a mistake once, but I was wrong.
