Finesse-Fishing.com has closed and has nothing left to sell, other than a few used books. I have decided to leave the website up as a resource for people interested in fishing with light rods, light lines and light lures - true finesse fishing.

Fishing the San Juan

by Bill Piatek

Spent a few days up on the San Juan with a friend and the wives. The girls went sight seeing in CO while we fished various spots. Went to the "Texas Hole" where they launch the drift boats for floats. Used a XUL spinning rod and Crusaders and Lupins with 2# test. It was a many day for me, outfished the boats 6 to 1. Did lose one huge fish to a bad knot though.

One guide at lunch was amazed. He said he thought I was averaging a fish every couple of minutes. It's such a unique spot. You can see 16" fish tipping up within 6 feet of your feet.

It was probably the fact that everyone is fishing the same midges and San Juan worms where a spoon elicits a chase reaction.
