Not all fly fisherman fish only Blue Wing Olives and Beadheads, there are tons of other flies, techniques, size of lines, sinking, floating, size of rods, reels, etc etc.

I think there are times when flies work better than anything else, but that's rare. Fly South had a couple of bass tournaments last summer. The weigh-ins during the dog days were sad.

On one day, nobody legally weighed in a fish. As I recall, Dunigan won that day with one spotted bass. Others threw their spots back, but the lawyer in Dunigan convinced the officials that it was a legal fish and won the whole enchilada.

My point is that I don't believe that we fly boys can compete day in day out. If the fish are deep or suspended, the buggy whips are in a world of hurt.

We fly boys are much better looking and have more fun, though.

Hook, I know there are other flies to use, lots of them. Which ones are being used on BASS or CRAPPIE topurneys? Oh yeah, none of them. I give up.

I agreed from the start on the tourney stuff, and why it won't work. Go back and reread before you throw your hands up and have a fit.

Maybe the "fun" part, but not the "good looking" part. \:D

I think I'll start the day by throwing my hands up and having a fit. Might as well get it over with. \:\)

My friend, Gary "Bad To Gag" Gremillion use to throw his hands and lunch up and have a fit. He sounded like a spooked blue herron when he did it.

He fished with flyrods a lot. He was way ahead of his time, though. He had so many flies stuck in his ears he looked like a punk rocker.

I'm good for mornings. The least little thing can set me off like turpentine on a hemmerhoid.
