In all seriousness, for me personally it's all about what I feel like doing on that particular day, though the underlying constant is that I always feel like catching fish. Now my methods change based upon whatever I feel like within the regulations of course. I experiment a lot. I don't get hung up on what you want to call it, it's a minor issue to me. I grew up fishing with a wooden stick and a line tied on the other end. I'd sit on the rocks and drop my line below me in the water (salt) and with a line, hook and piece of cheese on the other end I caught lots of fish. Best memories ever! I would use my dads lead (some kind of metal) left over wine bottle neck wrap folded and re-folded for weight. I then graduated to hand line fishing, a big ol wooden spool with line, weight and hooks. Then I got a spinning rod, then I got into fly fishing. Sometimes, I gear fish, sometimes a bait fish, bobber fish, swing flies, eggs etc. Sometimes I do it "traditional' style, sometimes, I break out of what seems to be the only way to fly fish right and go straight up un-orthodox. In the end, I look to have fun within the boundaries of the law and will do whatever I please. What concerns me more than anything, yes more than swinging vs bobber vs whatever is THE WAY SOME PEOPLE HANDLE THE EFFING FISH!!!! I've seen many a "traditional" fly angler BUTCHER a fish just for the camera, grabbing the fish all over etc, don't get me going here... Anyhow, thought I'd spin the thread or at least try!
