    if that is the case then why is it illegal in Washington and Oregon? If you are using a 10' leader you are flossing and the leader length alone proves your intent.

    Re: Flossing now illegal?

    just to clarify this for myself, when you use the term flossing are you referring to bead fishing? if so, do you consider that as solely a snagging technique? I wonder if there might be more to it than that, judging by the numbers of fish caught that way that are mouth hooked- and with a single hook at that. is it possible the salmon are reacting in some other way to the egg-like bead?

    i'm not defending snagging, I just remember as a kid trying to snag fish I could see with a treble hook and finding that wasn't all that easy to do. I dunno, it seems there may be a little more to it than the line running into a salmons mouth and sticking a single hook in it, to boot. perhaps some instinctive "protect the egg" impulse, or ??

    any thoughts on this?

    I don't floss, I have dentures and prefer an overnight soak. The story sounded fishy when I first heard it. Thanks RNP for setting the record straight.

    I now understand what I'm doing and why (or at least think I do). I think most others do to.
    I once snagged a huge sturgeon jigging for salmon on the Sac. To this day it's still the only sturgeon I've ever caught, and I've fished for sturgeons about a dozen times. Go figure :=).
