Bug and Bobber!  

When I was given a chance to go backpacking 12 miles along a river with a youth group, my immediate thought was…what tackle to bring along? Panfish came to mind right away. Packing heavy, bulky tackle would take up to much room so I went small and effective. Two rival spins, a pack of whip r chaws, Carlisle missile floats and the new Ring Fly Gnats is what got packed.

The Bug and Bobber technique seemed to work the best for catching nice panfish along the trip. A 1 ¾ inch clear missile float, a short leader 18-24 inches long, and a ring fly gnat is what was the most successful. Missile floats help keep flies and gnats above the water and make the strike of fish very easy to identify. When panfish strike the ring fly gnats they make a “pop” on the surface of the water. The “pop” is just the fish gulping up the gnat on top of the surface. Being able to see, feel, and hear the bite is awesome and makes this setup very enjoyable. Don’t forget the “bug and bobber” setup when searching through your tackle box, it will pay off.
