This is getting fierce.

I have the longest mother funky skunk going on ever. Two weeks, no fish in the boat. Mostly throwing a big trout looking fly. Starting to whine and think about getting some of those slip bobbers......

Todd, the best cure is to do things backwards like a Contrary would – Walk backwards on the boat, use your back cast as the presentation cast and fish 180 degree’s in the opposite direction.
Did you or someone else bring fresh fruit in the boat at some point? If a banana came on board the skunk could last for weeks, although it’s usually accompanied by major equipment failures with electronics and specifically, transducers. Bad Ju Ju.

Maybe a smaller offering like a 1.5 inch shad imitation or something dredged a little deeper could help too.
