Re: Ultimate Trout Fly
Ok, i am probly gona start a fire here, but
First why is a sanjuan almost like cheating? Thats like saying a al flies that look like bugs is cheating, is a fly that looks like a grasshopper less like cheating? Its all the same you are makeing lures that look like bugs out of feathers, cheniel and what ever.
And mashing up crawlers and putting them on your flie is cheating , you might as well been bait fishing.
And may be against the law if your in fly only water.
And second why snear at bait fishermen, just because they fish diffrent then you or me, some may bait fish simply becuase they cant fly fish due to bad knees, heart problems( easier to walk down to the river set down and throw a line out), breathing problems, or maybe the dont have the money to drop 150-1,000 on fly gear.
And third with all the folks now days that would like to see hunting and FISHING outlawed why would we dog other folks that enjoy the same things we just in a diffrent way?
I know some people that use bait dont belive in catch and relese and they are not good to the fish that they dont keep(rough handling) but my friend I have seen many fly fisherman that are worse.
Anyway I am glad you had fun and caught a mess of fish, but at leats the folks useing bait didnt HIDE it by putting it in their floating bottle then act like they were better.
For the record I fly fish MOST of the time, but if I want to just set and relaxe your damn right I'll pick up my spinning rod and jar of power bait or box of worms, spinners, crankbaits how ever I feel like fishing at the time
