Stillwater Fly Fishing: Slip Bobbers and Flies

Slip Bobbers: I have written a couple of times about this technique, I first saw on a BC TV production with Brian Chan. If you query slip bobber in the search box you can find those additional posts. Today, I wanted to point to a nice piece by ‘Doc’ Monteith at Fly Fishing Central that has some specific visuals of not only the slip bobber rig but of the fly set up as well.

One thing I have adopted long ago for working the horizontal presentation was the non-slip loop knot. But, Monteith advocates it for vertical presentations as well. I find the larger loop and hooking capabilities interesting. I would hesitate to impart too much available movement in a vertical presentation, yet Monteith says it has improved his hookups. Worth a try for sure....

“Whether using one fly or a multi-fly rig, presenting your flies is important and the knots you choose to use can impact your success. For years I tied my chironomids using an improved clinch knot to the eye of the fly, then a couple years ago I started using a non-slip loop knot. This change in presentation has increased my catch rates substantially and I now only use the clinch knot in specific situations. The non-slip loop knot is not only strong but because it doesn’t synch up to the eye of the fly, it leaves the fly moving freely and more naturally in the water. I’ve found the size of the loop does not appear to affect catch rates…..”   (more to read)
