Thanks for the great article. I became hooked on stillwater fishing this past year on Idaho's Henry's Lake and discovered the methods for fishing that water are as varied as the numbers of boats on the water on any given day - when it doesn't blow. My favorite is to use an intermediate line in water 3 to 8 feet deep and use a variety of hand retrieves - whichever seems to be working on that day. Biggest challenge for stillwater seems to be locating the fish, same as on any other type of water I guess. Thanks for the good stuff.
