    Bingo!! I'm still struggling to understand why swinging a brightly colored chicken with a chunk of t-14 is fly fishing but putting a split shot above your finely replicated nymph to actually, you know, represent something that fish eat, is gear fishing.

    It's nothing more than cheap entertainment watching people get riled up over how another person is fishing. Most of my fish the past couple years have come with a float and shrimp tail dangling below it cast with a levelwind. The 15 years before that is was strictly the fly. The years before that it was a corky and yarn, bobber and jig, spoon, spinner....

    (I know, this fish is lying on the rocks with a hook in its chin)

    It's a fair question as to whether T-14 and intruders are flyfishing. I know a few Canadians who woud say it isn't. I'll use T-14 but more likely T-8. I don't use half chicken flies or weighted flies. They are a bear to cast.

    I would say for myself that T material is still fly line/tips. Weighted flies are something I don't ever really use. But if I did, I wouldn't get mad if someone told me it wasn't flyfishing. I could see that and hell, it isn't anything bad to fish gear.

    I suppose I don't understand the need to rigidly define these things in threads that originally had nothing to do with defining them. It's a fly fishing forum. People use indicators with fly rods. If you can't come across a thread about the subject without feeling the need to proclaim "just use a gear rod" or "that's not fly fishing" then you're a retard.

    I hope we didn't run you off. This is a mighty thread. You're strong with the force.

    I'm pretty sure that I'm not a retard although my wife may agree with you at times.

    I will cop to being a prick though.

    It would consist of two threads. One about nymphing and one about which line to use on a particular Spey rod.

    Oh, and the thread where OMJ tells us how he can fish the skinny waters of Montana from the driver seat of his pickup. So 3 threads.
