So I have been using a ruff looking Royal Wulff as a strike indicator the last few trips.  And while I haven't caught anything on it, I still like the use of it.  Well I lost it a pond with sharp ice floating all around.  So I made a replacement purposely making it extra heavy.  Well, to me it looked too darn good to use as a strike indicator and decided to photograph it instead and keep it around for awhile, maybe use it on a couple strong current streams this summer for something that calls for extra thick.

A royal Wulff is always a good idea. The more. Fish often.

I have a friend who used the royal wulff SOLELY for 1 entire year and caught exactly 100 torout on it...I know that sounds fake but those are the facts..


since then he hasn't caught a single fish on it!!!!     i guess it proves that if you fish something enough you'll catch fish on it :)
