Yes, here it is, the peasant’s answer to fooling the farm fed escapees up the canals.
We all have some old 1 and 2c pieces in the shed, and they just happen to be a similar colour to the fish food thrown at the Salmon Farms.
I figured, it these were lobbed out on a fly rod in a roll cast, they would hit the water lightly and flutter down slowly and probably be eaten on the way!
I’ll report back to you all when I try them out, soon.
Don’t be too hasty in the smartarse comment, our grand-pappies fished with pennies “back in the day” and that was before Salmon Farms!25/05/2012 at 10:37 pm #21032burkefishParticipant
have often thought they would work. about the size of fly spoons that have always been successful, have a jar of 1and 2 cents might try some as well. I also have 100 or so fly spoon blades that are silver plated that would probably work.17/11/2012 at 4:15 am #21925bradicleParticipant
Any luck with these?17/11/2012 at 8:21 pm #21929yellowfinParticipant
I’ve just came back from fishing the Ohau canels over the long weekend for the 1st time expecting to hook a monster, but the best I could do was catch half a dozen wee salmon. I’ve notice about 95% of the guys that fish there use soft baits must be the in thing there,ok I went and used them too and caught a couple guy next to me caught a 9lb rainbow on 1(which was the only highlight of my w.e,)but I changed to a traffic light Tazzy devil and was the only 1 at the time that caught 2 salmon in a row on it,which tends to think that fish don’t only take soft baits there.
