Missouri rules prohibit rubber and vinyl in flies.

Recommended Posts

Yet many of us fly fish the warm streams ponds and lakes with out the special protection.  Obviously the fly only rules came about at the request of some insecure segment of the fly fishing community,  a special "safe room" so to speak- yet we still have the option to mix with the other brands of anglers in all  other areas (barring that short section of Bennett Spring).  Every week I see fly rods in all sections of Roaring River, and for that matter more spin fisherman than fly fishermen in the "fly only area".  The thought has crossed my mind that "fly only" regs are a hindrance to fly fishing simply because of this kind of interpretation by non-fly-fluent policemen. Why not simplify the regs with a level playing field?  Would taking away the "specialness" of "fly fishing" hurt the guide/instructors' business so much as to be a huge money factor?

That's exactly right!  They are better looking, have better jobs and bigger johnson's.  

Ya left out better dressed with more accessories. Not many cheese chuckers sporting Orvis and Simms billboards on their clothing.

So, because we are so much better, we are being protected from cheese? That seems counter intuitive, they should have the safe areas where we can't  just barge in and take all the fish.

Back when I used live bait for everything, I always thought the "fly" areas were because those guys were handicaps or somehow unable to compete with other people. 40 years later I just don't get any reason for special "safe rooms" or extra regulations.  It's kinda embarrassing to think that MDC considers us as handicapped by the choice of "being better". .
