Not a bad day if you get a couple buddies together, check out the show, learn a new pattern or two, couple beers and a burger, maybe a seminar. For $15, a good way to get rid of the winter "blahs". Good excuse to just get out of the house, no?
It is a plain fact, however, that downstream fishing with a non-imitative fly (lure, in the British sense) does not mix comfortably with upstream imitative fishing...I'll stay out of the argument about whether this technique is really fly fishing. In terms of interest, it is for me ahead of most downstream fishing and spinning. And I've already opined that spinning is better than staying at home with the television set.
