(as I hang my head in shame)
But wait, you don't understand!
I was wading the river and I came upon this "Jiggy" on a rock in the current so I rescued it! Then for the next hour or so it kept calling to me insisting that I tie it on the line.
In a moment of weakness I surrendered to it's demands. (still hanging my head)
I know... I'm sorry.
You brought up something I hear all over. You fish WITH a worm or powerbait, etc. You are a bait fisherman. You fish with spoons, etc. you are a Lure/ spinner fisherman. So, it is what you are using right, not what rod you use. So if you use a fly, on a spinning outfit, you are fishing a fly....hensh fly fishing....right!
I don't know why I even brought this up seeing how the only 6' rod I have cast is a fly rod, infact all my RODs are just that and no POLES LOL
