    None taken man. I'm pretty difficult to offend. Some folks got some thin skins though, sheesh. I mean I rock the bobber, why not. I'm not going to have some debate about what it is or isn't cause it is what it is and that's that. I've had people run me down all my life for stuff about as trivial and that's fine. There isn't any hitch in my gidyup about it nor am I looking to hitch anyone else's. If you saw my beginning in fishing you would know that just fishing ethically is a triumph for someone like me. My only examples were poachers, and I've never done that even as a kid. That's just bad action.

    It looks as though this thread has served a constructive purpose. I don't see anyone advocating bobbercating the NF Stilly, even if they see nothing wrong with bobbercating in general and even prefer bobbercating, in general.

    Did anyone even post the language of the regs?

    What is the limit on # of flies on the stilly?

    What defines a fly line? Someone made a joke above about attaching 20ft of fly line to other fishing line and calling it fly fishing ... That's literally the same thing as a Skagit head with mono running line..so even when I swing flies with my spey rod I'm not fly fishing? Cole world. Real Cole.

    Polar bears are endangered now so theres a no kill policy nowdays,So if you want polar bear hair in todays world you must ,do a Chuck Norris staredown & get the bear in a submissive state so you can shave the beast & leave the beast with a bad haircut but otherwise unharmed.Anything less would not be social responsible in todays world.

    Can I still fish heavy beads on these waters or do I have to switch to glo bugs?

    OK this is pretty funny:

    Many skagit lines are less than 25 feet now. No more mono running lines I guess

    Nobody is old school, old school is pre WWII and thats just my opinion not fact.


    Here is a fact that is actually an opinion:

    how bout no indicators in wild fish waters ? only tightline fishing with any tackle, no bait, no barbs, no trebles... gear or fly same rules !!! come on, how bout we make steelhead fiishing lower impact, and not just a numbers game. let everyone have an equal shot;)
