To each his own, & I know people who have been perfectly content standing in one spot all day long, hucking bobbers on a fly rod. For them, it's all about the numbers, & bragging rites. To my way of thinking, it's drift fishing with a fly rod. There is nothing more efficient for drifting beads thru a slot than a center pin rig. That being said, were we in this game simply to put meat in the freezer, we certainly wouldn't be fly fishing!
There is nothing wrong with dead drifting a fly, even a cough, cough, bead head nymph. If nothing else, it will teach you how to mend line to keep the fly in the zone.
I fish because the voices inside my head tell me to.
