Hey Ya'll

I'd wager that this very same discourse was probably conducted well over 150 years ago.

Imagine for a moment, two passionate anglers - one, a proponent of swinging the ornate Victorian flies of the era, the other, content to lob the simple flies fashioned from plumage gathered from his barnyard or latest hunting trip.

While both are firmly entrenched in their individual schools of thought, both are 'correct', of course.

I think this age old and still gentle 'argument' is one of the many things that make our sport (and art) so darned fascinating.
