Sure you use a fly rod and flies, but really? Bottom bouncers and lead core? Is this still fly fishing? Another one said you have to go to far North Canada to fly fish Walleye this time of year. Nobody told the three big Walleyes I got this evening. (Just South of far South Canada)
Ok Diver you got my argumentative side up

The way you are ranting I figure you consider Nymph Fishing or High Sticking Nymps with Doubles and a SPLITSHOT not fly fishing either? I totally disagree and wouldn't it be better spent to rant on those that are poaching fish or fishing illegal rather than the ones that are going out and enjoying what we call as fishing fly or not?

My rant over.. I still call nymph fishing fly fishing and quite the addictive art.
