    Benny,
    Thanks for the question. Especially enjoy reading threads like this where a, I think, new fly fishing related question is posted and members weigh in with their thoughts and experiences. Somewhat surprised that topic has generated so many responses regarding the sport in general.
    Oh well...

    Yard, at least those are tied up and not right out of the berkley lineup. Are those chenile wrapped around some latex rubber tubing? If it is tied, then it is a fly, right!

    Oh, and are you scenting them with the strange looking contents in that little vial...

    O'rad,

    No doubt about the shortage of courts and quality games. That's why instead of lowering the basket, it's become socially acceptable to fish traditional methods for alternate species (finding new game) like chum and pink salmon, and even carp fishing has an evolving respectability. My friends used to assign one demerit if someone hooked a chum salmon, and two demerits if they landed it, as opposed to just breaking it off. The notion of fishing for chum salmon, for example, was totally incomprehensible.

    Again, there's no harm in using other methods. The insult to the game is when these practitioners of alternate methods try to call it fly fishing, as though what they are doing remains connected to the 500 years of fly fishing tradition.

    What's wrong with just calling it like it is? "Bubba and I was bobber doggin' beads alongside the driftboat in the Dosetulips the odder day . . . , and we rips us some lips . . ."

    If you don't fish greenheart rods with silk lines, throw hand-tied all-natural-material flies wrapped on hand-forged blind-eye hooks attached to gut leaders, you are a flyfishing wannabee.

    C'mon, gents. Really?

    Ugh, if you've read my post, I apologize. I opted to just delete it.

    Rob, I'm just asking because it wouldn't be considered a "fly" by most legal definitions. Would be no better then a bead, just a tad fancier is all. Something that slides down the line and hangs above the hook.

    BTW SG, you're not worth it. I have too much respect for Chris to let it go any further. If you want to discuss this through PM's, you know where to reach me.

    Reading some of the self satisfied, smug posts on this thread makes me wonder just what is is that makes some people take themselves so seriously. "Real" fly fishing? Please.

    In the off chance it's some miasma or effluvia that comes off head cement or other tying materials, I'm going to start wearing a respirator when sitting at my tying desk, I'm already too paranoid about who I'll fish with.
