Oh no! Not the fly fishing snobbery thing again.... Look, fly fishing is just another "arrow in the quiver" Happens to be the one I prefer, but not the only one I use or guide for.

It's a tight race with BD on top.

I assume it's catching a fish bigger than the biggest fish caught by a shop employee...in this case Monroe.

Close. "Beat the shop" is based on total weight caught by the shop employees rather than the biggest fish caught by the shop, I believe.

Ah, the old jealousy strikes again... some people just don't get it no matter how many times you drill it into their heads.

Like Gil said, it's the same concept as bow hunting - it's not about "the best method for catching the biggest fish," it's about increasing the challenge. For comparison - there aren't many times when hunting a turkey with a bow is "more effective" than hunting one with a shotgun, but it's challenging and rewarding when you do it and succeed.

Anyway biglures, it's a free country. If you want to hold a conventional tackle carp tournament, you are free to do so whenever you want!

The difference is, I can sign up for your conventional tackle carp tournament and I will beat you. But you can't join the fly fishing tournament and beat me.

Nothing to do with jealousy BD- what is there for me to be jealous about?

I am happy you are the self proclaimed all tackle carp champion but I can sight fish and toss a dough ball with the best of em-

If you ever care to hold an all tackle tournament of your own for longest fish or heaviest fish count me in. Trout, rockfish or muskie, doesn't matter- you will lose.
