Meh, just not my style.
I like to catch fish and it is exciting when i do, but i am out to have a good time on the water in a great setting. If i have to engage in a technique i dont personally like just to catch a fish, well, more often than not i will just pass and not catch a fish. I will still go home happy though.
It hasnt stopped me from buying a big pile of nymphs to fill up my boxes with though. lol
