Default I quit fly fishing

I fly fished in montana and wyoming over 500 days in a 5 year period, not to mention the decade before that, but I quit when I moved to Houston. Now I chuck live shrimp and mullet. I am even buying a boat next month so that I can go into the gulf in to chuck larger live baits.

I felt guilty at first, but that feeling passed.

If you ever had success at flyfishing, you will be back someday. The fact you are posting on a fly fishing forum just may be a sign.

To coin the lyrics of Bobby McFerrin, “ Don't Worry, Be Happy.”

( For all that's sacred, he didn't really just quote Bobby McFerrin, did he? )


It’s all good. It’s outdoors, it’s on the water, it’s fishing and you’re liking it.
Nothing wrong with any of that.

Enjoy, TT

What? Everyone’s suddenly to polite to ask him about the garage sale?

Can you provide the link to the bait forum so I can post that I've quit fishing chicken livers on the bottom?

Tossing live shrimp in the Gulf is fun, but you can catch the very same fish on a 8wt and a well tied fly?

I switch back and forth with spin and fly, no big deal. Both are fun ...... enjoy!
