I used to almost always flyfish. trout bass whatever swims was good on a fly rod
After my back healed from being Broken i found a fly rod tough to use for long periods

Now we all know that you can fish a fly any fly on a spinning rod with a split shot just like you do with a plastic worm.
If you have not tried this give it a go when fishing is tough
a twist on using flies with a spinning rod is to Drop shot a fly. This keeps the fly in the strike Zone forever.
works well with Bluegill and trout
I like to use Chronomid imitations or most any small fly
I use mostly 2-4lb test
as always make sure your hooks are sharp
very little shaking is required and sometimes not movement at all
Try it you might like it

Drop shot a fly, why didn't I think of that.
Thanks for sharing Tom.

That's a pretty good tip. Like wise here, never thought about that. Fly bobber etc but never drop shot

I read about this and it sounds like a great way to use those flies I have sitting around the house, thanks for sharing.

yup, good trick... don't forget the ole fly & bubble technique for throwing dry fly's on a spinning outfit too.

IN a river the drop shot system keep the fly down at a present distance off the bottom..same in a lake
seem to work better than a weighted fly line for me
