Quote from: Mudwall Gatewood 3.0 on August 11, 2021, 08:13:27 AMI was joking about techniques after Sawyer. I know very little about the euro style and really have no time to investigate. Infiltrating the golf circles, who are predominantly conservative republicans, remains on my front burner. A-a-ron in a recent phone call reminded me of the political lean of most golfers. Permeating the golf scene has provided much knowledge and complementary ammo. What I do know about the euro angling seems fascinating. I know of an angler from the Blacksburg VA area that has used something similar for more than 40 years. He still fishes with a long fly rod, fly reel, but with heavy mono (like Maxima, no fly line) with lighter tippet attached. He 'slings' flies, bait, lures, whatever is working, and always fishing in close.Interesting discussion. https://www.maineflyfish.com/forums/index.php?/topic/31680-is-euro-nymphing-really-fly-fishing/
