Don't need to learn how to fly fish when I can catch the same fish on a spinning rod.

Learning to fly fish is so fun... In CO, trout should be caught on a fly rod... it's just better. Once you have done both, you might agree.

Yes, I agree it is the classic way to fish the abundant rivers and streams we enjoy. Have bought and sold fly setups twice now; maybe third time is a charm?

Haha... it's not for everyone and getting started is tough and sometimes frustrating. I do believe nearly everyone who is able to fly fish will agree, it's worth the effort.

I agree completely about fly fishing. However, fishing streamers with an UL spin setup is pretty effective. I've done it both ways, and the spin rod was much easier.

I like fly rods for dry flies. It's what I think fly fishing should be, but that's just my opinion.

Pretty simple concept. For those who don't fly fish.....= better learn.
or continue to catch fish on a spin rod and enjoy watching the anguish on the faces of many a failed fly fisherman...... (witty sarcasm)

Before all the purists chime in; its just a joke. I do respect what fly fisherman do and the work they put into their craft. It's just not for me yet.... Why fix something that isn't broken??

I never threw em!!! To be perfectly honest, my shoulder is injured so throwing big stuff is tough on me. I did fish and did well on eggs/copper john once I found the fish. I might do a quick report.
