I think besides being so desperate for a fish, it's clear there would be no fish in the river without a rule to keep those who will use any method to hook up.
Ive seen guys here rig the weight above the lower hook, just to circumvent the law.
Because for some having is more important, than how it's gotten. But, that could lead us to claiming that only fishing a dry is fishing.
If that was true....from what I can tell, the fish would be pretty safe.
It is why I've been here so long.
Went fishing on some stupid easy browns recently....caught them on one drift each...dryfly, nymph, streamer.
Wasn't that much fun really after a few...
I missed the abuse on the T....
