Sully- I apologize if you or anyone else found this post to be elitist. That is the farthest thing from my mind, and if you read the thread again I think that you'll see this. Like yourself, I also pursue gamefish with other methods and think that they help me to improve upon my favorite method (flyfishing).
I also agree that elitism is not what this site is about. That's why I posted the topic here, because I had a feeling that posters wouldn't start to flame away at each other like on other boards. I see this site as one full of objective and helpful folks. That's the reason that I frequent it.
