I used to fish using spinning gear. Got pretty good at it. Then I learned to fly fish and got pretty good at fly fishing. I gave my son in law all of my fly rods, reels, fly tying equipment and supplies. Took out one of my old spinning rods & reels and couldn't catch a fish with it if the fish was trying to leave the water. Now I need to get me a fly rod, reel, etc. again to take canoeing. Going to concentrate on catching Grayling.
