OK, I just gotta know.

Why is it that you never see some guy with a flyrod fishing for bass on a B.A.S.S, or FLW tournament? Is it like NASCAR were they want everybody to have the same lures, plugs, spinners, worms, (kind of like restrictor plates)?

What are the rules regarding rods, methods, rod lengths that would prohibit such a thing?
I hunt and fish not for the thrill of the kill, but for the thrill of the grill!!
