It is what I DECIDE it is!!
Love it! I make my hooks from the bones of a fallen enemy too!!For fvck sakes man, how many times does this need to be explained? Fly fishing means casting a rod fashioned from Tonkin cane or greenheart if you're poor, a tapered silk fly line, a fly reel made in England, and flies tied only with natural materials, no mylar, polypro, or foam. Oh, and gut leaders, no nylon or god forbid, flourocarbon. Anything else and you're just another bait goober.
I sure don’t feel like I’m fly fishing when I false cast once and whip out a heavy woolly bugger with a 3 WT and an OPST head. I’d have to agree with this
Nope, I am referring to the rule I stated: anti snagging. 1 fly only.I'm not sure that is correct. The rule that I believe you are referring to is the rule that prohibits the use of treble hooks, not multiple flies.
Wow, how freaky...
I recently posed this question to a rock star member here: " Is it still considered a "fly line" caught fish if all i have on the reel is a leader, a section of T18-20 , and gel spun backing as the running line?"
Looks like it fits into this thread too
Can you show me this? I don't doubt you're correct, but I haven't seen it and I'm now wondering if I have inadvertently not followed the regs.
I love it, I got mine this summer right before backpacking season and it's such a game changer!My favorite is when it's not super windy, and I change my launch angle to that which would be similar to a spinning cast. man, it really flies. Every time I do that though, I think to myself that I shoulda just brought the spinning rod. It's still fun though.
