Default Nymph fishermen VS dry fly fishermen

I received this from a good friemd and I thought I would pass this on for some fun on the forum.

I personally fish both ways so this is not meant to be against one or the other.

"Two good friends go fishing together, one a nymph fisherman and the other a dry fly fisherman, both believing strongly in catch and release.
Not wanting to get in each other's way they decide that one will fish upstream and the other down, and at an appointed time, meeting back at their starting point and tell of their success.

Question 1. Which was more apt to fish upstream and conversely, which was more apt to fish downstream and Why ?

Question 2. Which one would come closer to telling the truth about his catch and why ? Notice that I said 'come closer' for most of us occassionally stretch the truth about our fishing success.

Example: If I was skunked and asked by my Bud, " How many fish did you catch, Jim? " and I said, " Not many " That wouldn't be bald-faced lie, so there you go. " But, If I'd answered 'a few' that would have been a bald-faced lie.Get the idea ? ;-)

Question 3. Which one was apt to be first to the return point, and which one would be apt to be late and why ?

Question 4. Which one's outfit, tackle, rod, etc. was more expensive ?

Question 5. Which one would be more inclined to smoke cigars ?"

What would be your answers?
