Default Re: What is a Purist when we speak fly fishing?

Interesting read, I initially thought this post would incite heated debate among the contributors. To the contrary, everyone has been climbing the mountain.

I consider myself to be a "fly fishing purist" as even though I have a whole slew of different fishing interests, I haven't fished with anything other than a fly rod since I was a child.

I also think that it must be very cold and dark up there in Alaska

Hi Paul,

Cold indeed, but we are gaining almost 5 minutes every day on the sunup to sundown time scale. It's just a matter of time.............. then comes the break up, then once the shelf ice has melted back enough I'll launch out for that first week float trip on the river. Thing is, I'm not sure which river it'll be this time around. Spring time can be Grayling and trout time if I can find the early arrivals.
