So very true! It's my fave type of fishing.
Sometimes, I take my L action spin rod to catch some largemouth bass. I have a neat Stradic and the new NanoFil super line and I "wacky" rig some Senkos. Sure, I'll catch 3 or 4 bass (some big ones too) but that is nowhere near as much fun as >50 beautiful Bluegills with my 3wt.
Same thing with carp. I have a couple "Euro" carp outfits (12' rods and electronic strike sensors) and I can catch a few ....... but this year I'll use my 8wt and some carp flies.
