Ok I've got it figuered out. Chum do not hit anything at all i have been in the water throwing different flies at them with Chum jumping all around me. Never so much as a hit. You guys know where the ugly Chums that cant get layed go to commit suicide. You go down to these beaches and take Pix and post them to make us newbies think they can really be caught on a fly. Then you post all these different pix of flys to tye. Red nose, green body, purple tails. Then you hang in the back ground and say" look Fred we got another one using that dumb fly pattern thinking he can catch a Chum. I hope they never learn this is just too much fun". Am I right?
