Not that there's anything wrong with other methods of angling - all good right? But if you spend equal amounts of time jigging, flyfishing, dunking bait, throwing cranks, for example, that makes you only 25% serious? Myself, since JJ2 switched me over, throw tied jigs almost all the time, resorting to plastics on a jig head only when bright flashy thump is required for targeting larger predators in low vis conditions. I might resort to bait if desperate for meat with no other alternative, but that would be almost never. So, close to 99% serious.
