Nobody needs electronics of any kind to fly fish a lake. But I think it was @IveofIone A few years ago who compared using electronics while fishing to driving across country using a map or gps. No one needs a map, or a GPS to drive across country. Just head east and you’ll get there eventually. But Google maps can tell you where exits are, or points of interest, or gas stations or how far to the next restaurant. How in the world is that cheating? Sure as long as you have your eyes open you’ll find all those things eventually. So if you’re the type who just wants to head east go for it. Nothing wrong with that at all. In fact sometimes it’s fun to be spontaneous and just go out for a drive. But more often than not I like to plan a little bit, just makes it more enjoyable for me.
