where did the fly fishermen go? the art of fly fishing for trout is gone. today the fly fishermen use an egg ball followed by a split shot 12" to 14" above the egg, then at a given depth a strike indicator.
this same method was used by bait fishermen, only they called it a cork or float, with the use of a spinning rod. this is really not fly fishing in the true meaning of the word. so put down the fly rod and pick up your spinning rod. when somebody asks if you're a fly fishermen, just say you trout fish. That's the truth.
