Default Heretical post here - beware

I've tried to like nymphing, but I find that I don't.

I agree that nymphing can be an effective technique, but so can fishing with bait. I don't find the methods I use while nymphing are different in any significant way from bait fishing.

I don't really feel like I'm fly fishing unless there's some casting involved - a lot more than in nymphing.

I like dry fly fishing, wet fly fishing, and using streamers. I'd even use a nymph fly and cast it like a wet fly. Fishing a fly like I would fish a worm just doesn't do it for me.

Anyone else feel like this?
