Re: Time To 'Fess Up...
I, as of last year, am the proud owner of a great baitcasting setup that I'll whip out on the boat for bass and bay fishing, though I still use a fly about 75-80% of the time even in those situations.
I won the rod and reel (a Shimano Curado, great reel) at a CCA (Coastal Conservation Association) Happy Hour raffle, it was by far the big prize. Everyone in the room teased me, tried to trade the tumblers, soft-side coolers, etc. that they won in the raffle for it, exclaiming one after another that "the fly guy doesbn't know what to do with that rig!"
