And to specifically answer the "mix" aspect I can speak from personal experience. The answer is yes - given some limitations. In the typical "bait stop" situation, I think it works just fine to have one or two guys fly fishing but crew experience makes a huge difference. Fast sinking lines also play much better in general due to less current drift and simply getting down and hooked up quicker. The other thing is fly fishers actually NEED one or two at a given time fishing conventional to keep fish hooked, and the school at the boat.I mean, obviously you are using fly rod, but does it work for multiple clients to fly fish, or have a mix of fly and gear people?
