"Fly" Fishing with Spider Silk and Kites

Think you have a unique way of fly fishing? I'm sure it doesn't top this in regards to special techniques... I watched this video first over on Midcurrent.com and felt I had to share it with everybody over here on Flytalk.

I have a love hate relationship with needlefish on a fly. They're aggressive as hell, but impossible to hook. If you've ever fished in the salt there's a good chance a needle's taken a swipe at your fly. 99% of the time you can't hook them. Their mouths are tiny, bony, and full of teeth - making it...

...ridiculously hard to set a hook in them. Perhaps I need a kite, outrigger, and a giant spider friend that I pillage silk from on a regular basis.

Enjoy and have a great weekend.
