You ever get sore carrying that chip around all day?

But, let's talk about results, eh?

77 responses.
16 people say, "its stupid."
17 more say, "its lame."
That's 33 people.

9 people say, "its krad, I want in!"
9 more say, "I'm totally down, I follow all of it!"
That's 18. Just over 50% of the total antis.

Then we've got the middle grounders, the ones who said, "Meh, its pretty lame but I'm into catchin'!" That sounds to me like people who think the competition angle is pretty tremendously pointless, silly, or even stupid but learn the methods because they like to hook fish.

There's 26, there. I hardly consider those the latter, pro set. I'm more more likely to call them then anti-set, but even if not, 33 people > 26 > 18.

Wanna split that 26 down the middle, that's 13 more for you, so that's 31 total for pro-comp crew... 33 > 31.

Sorry, Chip, you did done do lost the battle.

How do you figure that? Read the poll. 74% of respondents answered that they have no interest in the competitive fishing or are outright hostile to it.

"I have some interest in the methods used for fishing, but not the competitive part. "

No way I would split the 26. They are clearly against the competitive part.

You win this one sir.

Due to all that lead shot we've crimped on with our teef, our brains have gone soft and we don't understand the math.

Competition über alles!

It's tricky math indeed, but I think I figured out a way to explain it to the competition fly guys.

Let's say your fish counter shows you caught 4 fish. 3 of those fish were Browns and the other was a rainbow. In this example the browns represent the majority of fish caught while the rainbow is the minority. This should clear up any confusion.

IMO Flyfishing should not be a competitive sport. Have you seen how absurd and foolish competitive Bass fishing has become?

Depends on whether your sitting in the $40,000 prize or admiring it.

You guys just don't understand, this isn't your grand pappy's dry fly fishin, this is about SPORT!

Don't worry, though, coz it turns out that he's not just a loud mouthed WWE-meets-B.A.S.S.'er, he also does it for the kids.

See, he's just like you Moulin Rouge competitors after all, wheh. I was worried for a moment that competitive fly fishing might end up making a mockery of what alot of us found quiet and contemplative when we started out doing it...

Agreed, its silly. But by the same token, how many new lures and techniques were developed for it that are used by everyday bass fishermen? They make a real effort to promote stewardship. For instance they release all of their catch to promote C&R. They hold many of the tournaments on struggling or recovering fisheries to highlight their benefit to the citizens, for instance the recent tournaments on the 3 rivers of Pittsburgh. Such events are also high profile in the community, and get kids excited about fishing and into fishing.

I could care less who wins a bass tournament. I think its silly. But I also think its beneficial, and if thats what it takes to make the rest of the world take notice, well, so be it.
