Default Re: what's better, Size or numbers?

In the early 70's when I was starting out, my mentor took me on 1/2 hour drive to his "favorite fishing spot". When we started to rig up, he told me all I would need is the tip section off my rod. He had me put my reel in my pocket. We walked down a trail to a piece of water almost too small to call a creek. We spent several hours making delicate casts to 4 inch+ fish. Tough spooky fishing with sz30 dries. Personally, I love very smart large (even huge) trout, but this one day put it all in perspective for me.
I tell clients that early on I couldn't stand and watch someone fish, now, I do it for a living. Glad everybody weighed in on this thread, I was curious how it would go.
