    Great News!!! Beading, flossing, lining changes may be coming

    Hi Mr. XXXXXXXXX, I thought of your question the other day after I had heard some news. The Department is currently working on several new regulations to be proposed to the Fish and Game Commission (not sure when). One of these proposed regulation changes would to specifically target “flossing”. I’m not sure what the regulation wording will be, but I believe it would be a gear regulation that would specifically prohibit the use of extra-long leaders.

    Currently as you stated the regulation reads the fish must voluntarily take the hook into its mouth. Unfortunately with our current regulations it is very difficult to prove involuntary take from “flossing” in a court room.
