Monofilament vs fluorocarbon.

I believe it’s Lefty that is credited with saying “There’s more bullshit in fly fishing than in a Texas cattle yard” (excuse the French) A phrase that is no more apt than when citing the 'Fluoro vs Mono' discussion.

FiberGlass Fly Rods - From Glass to Back: Coming Full Circle

July 10, 2019 4 min read

The first decent glass fly rod I owned was a vintage brown glass Fenwick. A tad short, a bit stiff, and with a plastic triangular tube that didn’t hold its shape and couldn’t keep its cap, it worked, and fairly well. Next I stepped up to an Orvis Golden Eagle, the last glass fly rod I purchased until just a few years ago. But that’s where it ended as I was swept up by the graphite tide.

" Find a feeding fish. Our first consideration is whether the trout are feeding - if at all. If they aren’t feeding, or at least watching for food, you may as well throw stones at them.
