Then why don't we just call ourselves fisherman, leave it at that and go off and worry about the big issues affecting our sport?.

That's my thought. I fish a fly rod, float rod, and spinning rod depending on what I'm in the mood to do. I'll use any of my rods for any fish around and not feel bad for doing it. When my wife asks where I'm going, I just say fishing and that's enough for her.

Enough for me too.

Thanks,
Rick

Most fisheries have rules, from barbless hooks, to no keepnets, to no flies larger/smaller than a given size, to allowing/diisallowing bungs etc etc, so certainly not inviting any method.

If a fishery has rules you dont like (or no rules at all), vote with your feet and go elsewhere.

If, by some slim chance, it is not ok to fish with a strike indicator at the above; why is ok at most stillwater trout fisheries? What's the difference?
Quite simple. They're not that stuck for a few quid .

I have fished with indicators for grayling on both the Test and the Itchen, it is a perfectly valid method for ensuring your nymphs are presented at a constant and correct depth.

Stop being offended by the way other people are choosing to fish. If they go about their business quietly with respect for the fish and other anglers, dont leave rubbish, pay their licence fee and ticket price but happen to enjoy fishing with an indicator, LET THEM! It is no skin off your nose, unless watching other people catch why you blank as you refuse to adapt and try new techniques bothers you.

Personally if I were a fishery owner, and someone showed up with that gear. I'd laugh, go and have a sit with them, make sure they were just using artificial bait. Maybe eat their sandwiches, probably have a cup of tea.

Hope they've bought some crisps, I like crisps, if you have a pickled egg in a bag of cheese & onion, oh there's nothing like it. Quite like a fizzy pop, when the weather is nice, not so keen on the fizzy pop being to cold, makes me hiccup. Did you know that eating to hot a chilli can make you hiccup, I didn't. I saw it on masterchef last night. I like masterchef, amazes me how far they come on. I think the Italian lady will win.

well well if i sneak into bushy saturday in disguise and pretend i am the new owner would you let me share your nosh while you give some thought as to how you were going to catch my big trout, rules permitting!!!. oh and dont forget i love a nice pasty and chedder, and a nice wine to wash it down failing that i can eat my hat, well it does have some flys in

And I have used an indicator when autumn grayling fishing on the Avon Springs stretch of the Upper Avon - the very same hallowed waters that were keepered by Frank Sawyer and fished by him and by Oliver Kite. Who, incidentally, advocated greasing the yard of leader closest to the fly line as an indicator when nymphing for grayling ! I'm just not as good a nymph fisherman as Ollie Kite was, that's all...

In all respects, danielp's reply is right on the money.
