Tips, Theories and pointers

My friend Wayne Stegen made a valid observation the other day.

He was advocating the use of an anchor when float tubing, especially when imitating naturals.  As he put it, when you are dragging around a large woolly bugger due to un-noticed drift, it doesn’t really matter. But when you are trying to inch along a tiny damsel, or dead drift a snail, and your retrieve is being accelerated without your knowledge by your drifting tube, you are not applying the formula you thought you were.

Do you know whether you are drifting or not?  I fish an old doughnut tube and kick gently against the wind, and believe I am standing still, based on landmarks on the shore. Maybe it is not accurate enough. A kick boat floats higher and drifts more.

Food for thought!
