Let's re-read what I wrote that provoked the mini temper-tantrum from Evan followed by a few eager beavers piling on: "Depends what criteria you use to define "best" Evan. If you prefer to swing flys (or given the fact that the swing is an umbrella for alot of presentations) you like to use your rod, the flyline and the fly to control your presentation (speed up, slow down, sink, add tension, remove tension etc) rather than lead weights, bobbers and all that BS, then why in the world would you switch to float fishing with your flyrod (nymphing)? This would certainly not be the best way to fish for someone who prefers to fish otherwise." How is that egotistical,critical, or cynical, or douchey? I literally point out that defining an angling technique, ANY angling technique, as "best" is subjective. Evan stated that under some conditions, nymphing is best, and I basically made an argument to illustrate why that statement was subjective. Notice that I did not say anywhere that swinging was globally the best technique. I instead illustrated how the best technique is the one preferred. Why all the attacks for trying to keep people's minds open that they don't need to swallow, hook line and sinker, the notion that only one technique is appropriate or best under various circumstances. If anything you all are the narcissists for thinking folks should subscribe to your narrowly-defined ruleset for how to fish.
