You can't sell over priced plastic lures mass produced in China. That's one reason.

Bob- you could if you could win. You can't sell jack finishing 152nd.

Not a pissing contest. Last thing I want to do is be covered in stickers that includes what gum I chew when I fish.

Ever heard of popping bugs, and I don't mean the 4 for a dollar you probably buy at KMart

Yes it does. But not when you have skid them across the surface and jerk them out of heavy cover. That's how you win tournaments.

Nobody is questioning if you can catch bass on a flyrod. The question is about tournaments. Catching bass and winning tournaments are often two diffrent things.

Later this year I am taking Gill bass fishing. I expect him to catch a five fish stringer of at least 30 pounds. I also expect him to get at least one rod broken. But I'll let him report on it. If we get the fish in open water, he'll do fine. If they are back in the thicket, he is screwed. Same with a tournament.

Hmmm The headless fisherman.

You just said exactly what I have been saying. BTW- Dang nice brown fish. Back in about 78, I had a stringer off Dale Hollow that averaged five pounds. That was when the limit was 10. Used a frog lookin popping bug. Would kill for a picture of that string.

Well, I guess that finally answered his freakin question. It only took a dozen similar replies to do it. Why would you want to start some idiotic crap like that?

let me do it \:\)

I love to fly fish, tie my own, whole deal. Having said that, I never in my life wondered why no one on the BASS tour was flyfishing, it's just not the most efficient method to catch them most of the time.

I'm also the furthest thing from a flyfishing purist, I like to catch fish period, a flyrod is just one of many ways to achieve that.

Just for fun:) They don't have a rod length limit in the Crappie Classic either and you still don't see guys chunking Blue Olives on fly rods, it's just obvious that the best methods are being employed by the competitors based on the situations they encounter. I think if there were anything goes trout tourneys (on rivers) you would see a lot more guys chunking lead than you would like to admit, because it works.
