funny ass thread... people saying centerpinning is "truly flyfishing in deep water" and making it out to be such a difficult way of fishing. it is a fun way to fish.... but it's not that complicated... but the justifications on this thread are hilarious my take on gear fishing - it is a fun way to fish, but i know i missed some great days fly fishing by going out with a centerpin. as for trolling with centerpin reels out in the salt water... the more time you do this the longer it will take to truly learn how to saltwater fly fish (same goes for bucktailing). salmo g has got it right... you don't have to fish every single inch of a river to have a good day. you might actually spend more time fishing good fly water if you don't slow down to focus on bobber water.
