Default Re: Heretical post here - beware

If I read correctly you ask, "Anyone else feel like this?"

I do hope we can respect the question and not have the thread digress into a nymph vs. others debate.

I learned how to catch trout and other species using the nymph patterns about 35 years ago. I took the time to learn because I wanted to know how to fly fish in all circumstances. Once I was proficient I felt the way you have expressed that you feel. It has been many years since I dead drifted a nymph. For me there is nothing in my whole life that seems as rewarding as believing that I have mastered the art of line & fly control which are the foundation blocks of catching fish on feather wing streamers and salmon flies.
