Fly but no Fly Rod…
A lot of Danes fish the fly in a special way. They use a spinning rod and a Bubble Floats for a Fly. This rig has the advantage of making you able to fish with a fly, but do so without having to learn to cast with a Fly Rod — or even buy one. Many fly fishers also prefer this method if the wind makes casting a fly hard or even impossible.
The method is generally considered the most efficient method for fishing se trout.
The “Bubble Floats for a Fly” method is simply a float that when filled with water acts as a casting weight ensuring your bait can presented at distance away from the bank.
The bubble float has to be of the type where the line runs through a tube in the centre. This allows to float to slide up the line when the fish takes the fly. The fish won’t feel the weight of the float, and the float won’t keep the fish from running.
The tradition says that you have to retrieve the bubble extremely slowly. Don’t follow that tradition. Retrieve as with any other kind of fly fishing: varied and according to the circumstances. Some argue that the bubble will scare the fish. My experience is the opposite: the commotion of the bubble will be more likely to attract fish, that will then see the fly.
