Default Re: Live bait?

When I first started using a fly rod it was actually with grubs. It was deadly. Simple roll cast, no weight, and I could pound the stocked trout. Interesting enough, I used flies on a spinning rod (11' noodle rod) before I used them on my fly rod. After a while, pounding 40 fish a day with grubs on a fly rod bored me, so I started using some of the flies that I used on my spinning noodle rod on my fly rod (novel idea, I know). Success was limited but I found that I could catch fish on the fly rod with flies and evolved to the point that I only fished flies, which I do now many years later. My point, it got me started using a fly rod... but it ain't fly fishing.

Cheers,
Mike.
