I'm new to the site, read about it in the paper and seems really a cool idea to let people communicate about fishing. I have a topic that I would like to discuss. Strike indicators. I've been fly fishing about 20 years, not a real serious fisherman, but I catch my share. Anyway, I tried using strike indicators for a few years and it always bothered me that we had to use such means to catch fish. Why not just use a spinning reel w/mono and a bobber. I was so bothered that the art of flyfishing was being abused by these articficial aids that I quit using them. I rely on sight of the end of the line and feel to detect fish and I haven't noticed any more misses than before. How about you guys, shouldn't we clean up the art, start relying on our senses instead of gadgets?
