Have I got the website for you!!!

The Gar Angler Sporting Society - G.A.S.S.! Best name ever.

http://www.garfishing.com/

I love their slogan too - "America's toughest sportfish for 100,000,000 years."

Fly fishermen often use a rope fly - it doesn't actually have a hook, but the fly gets snagged in their teeth. I'm sure a similar lure could be made for conventional gear. The website has a wealth of information.

Lord, this is one of my favorite pasttimes. Here's a fly I tie with mostly just nylon cord, but like Brian said, just the rope is fine. The pic. has the hook, but you don't want or need the hook part - it just gets in the way.

Many years ago as a young man we would take the grips off our biycycle handlebars.Cut some strands off momas mop . Then run them thru the hole and tie em off.We would catch BIG Gar up to 3 or 4 foot out of the Head waters of the Ky. river.

Thanks Everyone. Exactly what type rope or cord? I have yellow and have a blue & white too, But these are the type I use for my anchor ropes.

Gil Great fish. That fly is cool but the nylon looks very thin I must not have the right type rope.

We get them out of my father-in-law's pond by jugging with little live perch.
