    True fly fishing is using not only a fly rod but also a hook dressed with natural and or man made materials single hook to imitate the different life stages of bugs. Anything to do with spinning or bait fishing has nothing to do with fly fishing.

    God bless the fly fishing police! “Purists” are free to fish as they please, and I’m free to not be a true fly fisherman for using what works. If you go to roots of fly fishing, they used the available materials that caught fish, so who is the real purist?
