    Default snails in the caney

    I've been doing a lot of great fishing on the Caney and have noticed quite a concentration of snails. A buddy of mine and I noticed them when he pumped breakfast from a couple of nice trout and now are curious to find out if anybody knows of a good pattern and also how to fish them. Thanks for any input. Good fishin'!

    Hugh Hartsell's version of the Smoky Mountain Blackbird represents a snail purdy good. They may work. Not really keen on how trout feed on snails but I would think they would root on the bottom to dislodge them. I would also think a good many are dislodged from people wading. Dead drifting said nymph on bottom may suffice.

    Hugh is a member of this forum. Maybe he will chime in.

    BHPT, that's all i've used for the last 2 months, other than sight fishing with some midges.
