    I have already asked my supplier about it. It looks to be a very light pink (and I have already tried and rejected several light pink lines). I will get some in for evaluation and then decide whether...

    I'd say you were fishing with a fly but not fly fishing.

    As to who makes the rules, I think it is generally the state fish and game commission. I have a bigger beef with the "why" than the "who."...
