I like how you think Pat..we'll have to hook one of these times when your down here..I think you'd be a great person to fish with!!!Pat AV said:For me it started on interior trophy lakes 12 years ago, where no method stands a hope in hell of competing with a well presented fly.
Then I discovered free rising rainbows on walk and wade rivers....truly heaven.
Lately I have discovered the 2 hander....the jury is still out on that one
As for why other guys prefer to chuck feathers, I would not venture to guess. Some guys move on and some never do.
I dont care why some guys fly fish. As long as a guy isnt snagging fish, harming the resource and is following the regs, I'll let them do their thing. Everyones reasons for fishing are so unique that you would be hard pressed to find two anglers who fish the exact same way for the exact same reasons.jetboatjim said:I would like to know why some of you guys think some of us prefer to flyfish?
It sounds like you are ready to give it a go HR! :cheers:hotrod said:I believe the challenge is the reason. To be able to throw out a cast into the river and get a fish to bite something that is atrificial. To truly outsmart a fish. What a feeling when you get that perfect cast and drift and have something rise and absolutley hammer a fly and the ensuing fight. It brings a sense of pride and accomplishment. Not to mention the rush you get.The feeling of a great rod in your hand that performs flawlessly when casting and when you get a fish on.............I beleive there are many more reasons why but those are a few that I know of. The total expierience! O0
Sounds good I am in the Evergreen State all the time, would be happy to throw some line around with you!xgolfman said:I like how you think Pat..we'll have to hook one of these times when your down here..I think you'd be a great person to fish with!!!
