My favorite part of this story is that you are catching beautiful wild fish (and some piggies!) out of a stream you can almost jump over. Looks can be very deceiving!

Great story!

I'll bet you were whooped after hauling in all those beautiful beasts. Hope Santa did bring you some new boots - looks like you got the most out of those others.

Honestly, it's my favorite part, too.

I've been most successful pegging the bead about 1.5" above the hook. And yeah, depending on how quick your reaction time is, they eat it and you either hook them right in the corner of the jaw, the tip of the nose or under the chin. Clean, solid hookups.

Seen a ton of videos from the Midwest where guys do this on conventional tackle, fly tackle as well as center pin tackle. Simple and cool concept and like Dylar said, good solid hookups! I recommend doing this on the Hooch with yellow beads, just sayin'!

There's a hatchery outflow on the tailwater, right? That dead egg look ought to be potent up there when it's ripping good.
