What does it me to be a fly fisherman>

What does it mean to me to be a fly fisherman?
     I think first and foremost it means to be an ethical angler, a steward of the environs where we all fish. Secondly it means a way in which we catch fish;  how we catch fish with artificial flies that we make and no barbs on our hooks giving the fish much more advantage than other ways of fishing. For example most fish caught by fly fisherman when the fish strikes the hook is set by the angler and his hand on the line whereas other ways of fishing  such as bait casting , cane rod fishing the hook is set with the rod  tip and not the line, therefore a fly fisherman must keep his/her line tight at all times.
