    Default YOU DECIDE - Panfish - Mar 26, 2014


    I had been invited to a fish a pond where the owner was withdrawing water for his cattle. The owner was concerned that the fish would not survive the winter. When I arrived the pond had been drawn down over four feet. The day before went to the pond we got about an inch and a half of rain; most of it in twenty minutes.

    Answer to question. NO. Would I have done it right beside you in those conditions? YES

    Did you catch them on a fly? Sure did. And nothing against it. My boy learned to nymph with a small bobber and a beadhead on an ultrlight rig. Is it the legal definition of fly fishing in most situations? Nope.

    I've often wondered who makes the rules and who gave them the authority to do so?? I would call it fishing with a fly and not necessarily fly fishing in the traditional sense. I believe it was (is?) in Michigan that waters designated fly fishing only allow for spinning rods as long as an artificial fly is used (could be mistaken).
