Grant, I apologize, I did not mean to infer that you were disparaging Carl's skills at all...I was simply adding to Dan Blanton' comment about Carl's skill as an angler. I know of you and I have the highest respect for your skills as both a guide and an angler and the standards you hold yourself to. As I've always said before, it's a big enough world out there (both literally and flyfishing wise) for everyone to fish the way they want. As long as your having fun that's what counts, and as long as you don't put down what other people do. I don't disagree that it takes more skill to cast to a fish, that's why I pointed out that Carl has also done some of the toughest games in flyfishing out there (including a grand slam in the Keys) so it's not a case of him trolling to mask deficiencies in his angling. I did *not* think you were trying to diminish Carl's abilities, you were presenting your point of view and it's a perfectly valid one.
