Flies most of the time, spoons and drift gear as well. Lately I'm tinkering with floats more (jigs, beads, etc.). My angling life revolves around chasing steel, and I definitely cut my teeth using drift gear. Funny thing is that some of the best drift water is a real F****r to fish properly with a flyrod. Especially in winter. I think the ability of drift gear to slow a presentation dow to less than the speed of the current is part of it's power in cold water conditions. And my often mentioned "hottest steel" ever nabbed a spoon on the swing. So I have a special place in my heart for bent metal. BTW I have included a picture (1997 I think) of my hottest steel ever. Bottom fish.
