When I could still walk with out a stick, I dearly loved wading farm ponds with a flyrod and small popping bugs ( mostly yellow) or Shuman's crickets after Blue Gills and Shellcrackers or sometimes small bass. That is also fly fishing, but I submit it is not elitist. It is pretty hard to fly fish with a walking stick in one hand.

The connection may be that they're both beatifully made and beautiful to see in use. Both have a long and gloriful literature. The United States is the one country in the world where both are available to anyone who wants to learn their disciplines. They are passtimes that allow the participant to be a part of ancient traditions.

I have played a little bit with fly rods, but I prefer the feel of light extra fast action spinning gear. Pure preference, but bendy rods take away too much of the feel for me. I suppose that’s the point in exchange for the visual hunting of fish with fly gear, but I like the electric feel some game fish can push through a rod.

Can't catch (most) Appalachian brookies on conventional tackle.

It was a Pachmyer double case that I redesigned the interior and then had Marvin Huey redo the felt. Most everything you need in a 15 lb package.

Maybe the complexity vs. simplicity of them. Complex being the little things that are important to success. Simplicity, well one's a stick and a spool, the other a mostly simple mechanism.

Chicken wire fish traps, hoop nets, and quail traps are much more efficient ways to gather fish and game for food.

It's about having fun while doing so, and giving the fish and game a sporting chance. It's not about piling up big numbers.
