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 think that is ENTIRELY subjective!


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.

I almost got a Woolly Bugger earring one time, it was a super windy day on the White River and we were fishing the Bassmaster Classic. It didn't make ESPN though because Van Dam and the other guys all went to Clarks Hill at the last minute.

I had to do some stream-side surgery on my buddy - super bugger.

Very true, but I was not responsible for this one. This was one of those self-inflicted battle wounds. While he bitched at me, I told him I would only help him if he let me take a pic. My only role in this incident was to laugh hysterically and do a little surgery.

Ouch! My wife hung a CDR in my ear a couple of years ago, no fun. My buddy did the fishing line around the hook trick and told me he was pulling it out on 3 but he ripped that sucker clean on 1, dirty trick but it kept me from flinching.
