Thanks C2 , I never thought about tying a popcorn fly for gulls and pelicans !
Good idea. They should put up one heckuva fight on light tackle. :whistling:

What I was referring to is categorized among Sneaky and Devious tricks(tips?)

Remember that Old Age and Treachery will overcome Youth and Inexperience. ;)

What you do is to find a school of fish. You can be sure that the Potlickers will assemble to help you clean out the school when they see that you're catching fish.

Here's where the Popcorn Trick comes into play:

Take a bag of popped corn with you. After you've located the fish, go about one-half mile away and distribute the popcorn on the water surface. The birds(and potlickers) will come a-running.

You sneak away and go back to your original fish and fish 'unassisted'; for a little while, at least.

Now you know! :thumbsup: C2
