[QUOTThen drive by the X lake on Saturday AM and have a good laugh at all the tooners freezing there ass's off w/no fish to show for it. E][/QUOTE] Gary, you're a bad, bad man :thumb: I think you should do what you like. Kind of a cop-out, huh? There's nothing wrong with making your own rules, and as long as you're not blackballed by your own friends, who cares? I've got nothing against a guy who can't cast past his nose but who wants to fish a lake/river with a fly rod. Anyway, if you like to troll a fly then go for it. I personally like to cast, so I tend to do that. I'd lay odds that a lot of guys trolling can cast pretty well when they want too, especially if they're catching fish. I've been in one situation on Lone Lake when there were several guys trolling, and I was pretty much fishing circles around them with a cast and retrieve. Had to be the action of the fly, as stated before, and fly choice probably had something to do with it. Having said that, if they would have been catching all the fish I probably would have started doing what they were doing, pumped them for info on fly choice, etc. etc. 'Cause sometimes you just gotta do what catches the fish!
