You've got to be f'ing kidding me. Don't generalize "most people," for starters. Just because one is nymphing doesn't mean they don't have a damn good idea of where their fly is (unless they suck at it). And, the notion that "little stuff... bring fish up for extended periods, and through a much longer season" is just a clear declaration of ignorance. I use this term not in a deprecating fashion, but in it's actual meaning, "to ignore." Innocence can be described as doing or thinking something because one doesn't know better, the information simply isn't available, but ignorance is doing or thinking something despite the fact that the information is freely available to them. The notion that "little stuff that brings fish up for extended periods, and through a much longer season" is ignorant. Sorry, man.
