I'm impressed, 2 pages and no argument. To me FF is done with a fly rod, fly reel, and a fly. Casts of 60' or with six" of line out, weighted or not, on top or down under, it's all good.

There is a need to fish, to be in the water. It soothes the soul...

Pcray: I'm in Philadelphia....and I have yet to see someone wading PennyPack other than a fly fisher person. The same goes for Nashiminy Creek.

Is someone looking for a fight? Let us give thanks at this time of the year its THANKSGIVING.

"I am respected when I walk into any fly shop. Salespeople wait on me hand and waders. I once tried underwater casting just to see if I could. I am the most admired Fly Fisherman in the world. And when I fly-fish, I use the Clearwater II. Stay Fishing MF

Flies must have all material tied to a shank with tying thread, or they're not flies, material don't matter. Fly line and leader must be used. Indicator doesn't matter. And flies may only be used with said gear. Some using a fly rod using a plastic molted stonefly or mayfly nymph does not qualify.

I love fishin'. For me it usually with a fly rod in my hand. IMO that's fishin'. However, I have been known to:

Fish subsurface most of the time

Lob a super-heavy sculpin pattern under an undercut much like I used to do with a nightcrawler fished on a fly rod and a fly reel loaded with 4 lb test mono many, many years ago

Sometimes fish with absolutely no fly line out past the tip top on my fly rod

Occasionally use one of those bobber thingys

Have even been known to catch fish on a Green Weenie

I'll fish dries, wets, nymphs, streamers, emergers, trout candy (eggs, sucker spawn, SWJ's) and I enjoy all of this kind of fishin'.

The only time I fished a spinning outfit over the past few years was with a group of friends out on the Susky this summer on a pontoon boat. Fishing was tough..... I finally landed a few SMB and some bluegills and redbreasts after I resorted to casting a Clouser swimming nymph with a large split shot on my Uglystik. Nothing against any of the spinfishermen, I just prefer to have the fly gear in my hand.

Did I mention that I really love fishin'!

I'll go with Fly Rod, Reel and Line with a leader that is one third the amount of fly line you have out ( 9 ft +/- ) for tackle.

I'm not fly fishing more often as I am, then. With say, a 9 ft leader, that would mean you have to have 18 ft of fly line off the tip. i.e. a 27 ft cast or longer!

I'd say well more than 50% of my casts are under 27 ft. Dang near 100% of them if high stick nymphing or brookie fishing.


Guess that was th influence from coming off a trip to the Lackawanna. Should have estimated better!!
