While I have no doubt that this is true... I also have no doubt that here on NAFFF, fly fishing is probably the most popular form of fishing!
And while I have no reason to dive into the demographics, I am a bit curious as to what category you would place yourself into? This can be tricky as speaking for myself, using the poll references, I was a Seasonal type I before moving to Utah in 2010. Then I quickly transitioned to Part Time, type II, and believe that I may have now arrived in Full Time without even noticing (until now).
NOTE: Although not encouraged, the above poll is set up for multiple answers if needed.
Part time, type 2 for me. More than anything, the reason for this is my geographical location making it nearly impossible to fly fish year round. I enjoy ice fishing during the winter months, and have a few times this year broke out conventional tackle in warm water situations too.
Being retired I can fly fish pretty much all year long, the winters can be tough sometimes depending on the wx, so I just pick the best days to go out. I don't own any spinning gear and haven't ever tried ice fishing despite living in Alaska for 16 years.
I went with the always fly fish, but I do have the spin gear for those times I get to take the nephews out. They are still a little too young, but can't wait to buy them a fly rod when they can use it.
Old Newbie. But have already float fished 9 lakes, resulting in releasing dozens of trout from 13"-24", dozens more blue gills and baby largemouths, plus a 13" smallmouth and 26" carp; fishing a borrowed, older, parabolic, 5wt, 2-piece Orvis (I love that rod! Thanks Wally).
