OK, intervention time.
I'm a full time crappie guy, usually longline, but been known to shoot some docks and pull cranks as well depending upon my mood and fishing conditions and location. I have as many different types and duplicate copies of the different types of crappie spinning gear, I bet I rival some of you guys in total # of rods. For some reason, you need different "types" of rods depending on the style or method you are employing for the day. Sounds like fly fishing don't it.
Crappie are my primary target whether using the above methods or trying to look like I know what I'm doing when holding a fly rod. I catch the occasional gill as well, and my first fish on a fly rod was a blue gill that I beat to death first by casting the spider back at him so many times, guess he felt sorry for me.
So I'm a part time fly rodder.
