Dave, I'm a gear guy crossing over to fly fishing. I still do both and consider gear fishing to be my main focus. That said, I believe that fly fishing is forcing me to become a better overall fisherman. From the knots learned, presentations, techniques, etc. all is good and used throughout my fishing. I'm not just any old gear fisherman as I've orchestrated several 10:1 and 15:1 IGFA record catches on my boat and that encompassed everything from planning, rigging, finding the fish, running the boat, and handling the end game on the catch. I believe all of these efforts further my skills and that is what it's all about for me.


P.S. No trolled flies for me.
P.S.S. Blue sharks are not game fish :-)

To each their own.
