Why post a report? You'll just find one more guy in your spot the next day

I think it's for a variety of reasons...

I use to do it, but took so much (you now what word goes here) for it, that I didn't want to deal with the FB messages, emails, and threats I received on the river any longer. I still do post the odd report on small U.S. based forums, where the people have no reason to be pissed off, and it's a much smaller community group that actually appreciates the reports for the pictures, story - rather than just trying to troll around the internet for a report on a hot river.

Another main reason I don't really post is the time that goes into it. I'd rather just post some nice pictures, and keep it at that. Even with detailed reports and descriptions, I'd highly doubt even 1 out of 100 people on here would recognize a bunch of the island rivers I fish (you'd have to have fished there multiple times to recognize any of them). That being said - you'd get that one guy who for whatever reason feels the need to post the river name. At that point reporting is a problem. Lots of the small rivers don't need the pressure and the poaching (which has been a HUGE problem this year on the island). I just avoid posting any reports, or even background pics of smaller flows online to avoid the potential name throw and subsequent consequences.

I do agree however... It sucks as I really enjoy reading reports on days when I can't fish or just have a break from uni, etc. As I said, I tend to go to smaller US based forums for that, as the reporting seems to be continuing there - and just the way I like it too, no river names, just a story and some pics!

I agree with the general comments here, I can't see it as a form of flossing.  True flossing involves random chance that the fish swims into the line with it's mouth open. The bead stimulates a strike response. You have tricked a fish into biting which is one of the fundamentals of SPORTfishing in my mind.   Is a pink worm situated above a bead above a naked hook flossing  Nope.

Is a trout bead any different from this trailing hook spoon, which is an excellent method to minimize damage to fish:

It does raise the question of fishing with a so called naked hook.  How would this be viewed by a CO's.

Maybe ill get off my but and dust off the rod and get out and find something to report on myself too.
Looking forward to yours in the meantime Chris. :)

I don't think its all about the deep hooking thing.... when a fish sucks the bead in the hook sometimes catches the outside of the mouth so by the time they spit the bead the hook is already clinging on or gets slightly attached while they spit it out. its pretty much helping give the fisherman a split second longer to detect the bite. bait gives the fish something to taste so they hold onto it longer.
x2

i was taught that they spit the bead almost instantly as it is hard so the 2-3 inches gives you that extra sec to set the hook

i find fishing beads they rarely slam it and pull the float down as with roe, more the fish just mouthing the bead causing the float to pause for a split second

i dont see how the bead could help you floss as the line would slide down through the fishs mouth and the bead would hit the outside of the mouth before the hook most likely not resulting in a hookup

Glad to hear this fisherman made it out alive. Lots of nasty submerged trees which have fallen into the river make quite a trap for a fallen fisherman.

So learning that the boats were S&R and RCMP should put the boats on the river debate to rest.

Uncoachables unable to keep a one goal lead to lose in overtime. 7 straight defeats. They're done like dinner.

I really enjoy reading the escapades of others on the different forums and it seams as though nobody ever posts fishing reports any more.

Personally I haven't because I haven't had much to report on.

Not even a Vedder River report? Nothing.

Times are changing,but not for the better in my view.
Funny you posted this as I decided to write one tonight.lol
