Ok. I know the answers are going to vary here fairly widely. Please, I'm looking for personal opinions so I doubt that anyone can be wrong about that. Different perspectives? Sure!
So always on the quest for new challenges, I have been pondering "fly fishing" or at least something that resembles fly-fishing for halibut.
At what point would you consider yourself to have caught a halibut "fly fishing"??? I could put a pound of lead and a herring on a my 10wt....nah. How about a dodger in front of my fly with a 4 oz sinker? Probably not. Do I have to cast all my line out? Can I drift? Can I troll? Can I use lead? (C'mon I know a LOT of folks toting flyrods use split shots!! haha...me too! )
The current set up I have is a 10wt with floating/sinking line with an additional 30ft section of t-20 flyline. I know IGFA and such have rules, but to be honest, I think they are pretty ridiculous. I don't care so much about that. I'm not trying to be a purist, but I'd like to say with decent confidence that " I caught a halibut fly fishing." and have some justification for making such a statement.
Just wondering what average folks on a fly fishing forum would think.
