Flaggers. Fly fishing snaggers. We’ve all done some angling dirt in our day…but some places this has become far too close to too many people’s norms. Flossing coho. Some sad sh*t. Check this video out.

    A couple of things to mention- first this stuff is legal as long as you only keep fish hooked in the mouth. Some of these guys are amazingly good at doing that although there is a hell of a lot of foul hooking. I personally feel like there are some regs that could be written to stop it. Second, flagging happens all over AK especially where there are small streams full of fish. The flaggers are sight fishing when they do this. The biggest hassle is that they basically chase the fish up the stream flagging away with their Walmart special rods and reels. If you are anywhere near these guys you can figure they have totally terrorized the fish and made them spooky as hell. They basically ruin the area for real fishermen. Enough said.

    Holy shit ! That second guy might as well of tied a section of PVC pipe to a rake and just whacked the shit out of the water! If he snagged something he’d a been lucky. The flap on the water alone shoulda made em’ all hightail it!
