    I'm taking my marbles and going home. Nothing childish about that.

    So putting on 1 splitshot is not fly fishing,yet snap t casting steel cables coated in fly line is fine? Where are all the true fly fishermen who use single handed rods swinging dry lines?to me a guy using a 13 foot two handed rod is just as much as training wheels as a bobber.

    Wow, 14 pages os senseless bickering about something we all like to do. The internet really is great isnt it. You all gotta get out and fish more. Who cares how to do it or what you throw, as long as you enjoy it. Some of you have your panties so tight its starting to cut off the circulation to yor brain. This thread should die before it gives someone a heart attack!

    Hey, thanks to the internet it's easier than ever to make much ado about nothing. The Bard had to work at it.

    Another one that should write the news for MSNBC or Fox News. Who the hell is casting steel cables coated with anything? Gimme a break. Why do you resort to political pundit tactics of extreme exaggeration and false accusations?

    I would love to if I had any marbles left. The ones I used to play marbles with when I was a kid have been long gone for years and I don't know when I lost the other ones.

    Says the guy continuing the thread! Is the irony lost on you? You do realize that almost all parties involved are having fun don't you, or did you miss that?

    You can take it anyway you want. One thing I don't do is dish out a bunch of bull.

    I'm going to work on hand forging my own hooks this winter. If it works, I'll be the only true steelhead angler on the board.

    NO, you have that Ass-backwards.....A true steelheader can cast a twohander, sinking and or floating, after graduating from a single hander :)
