I personally could not have looked up river and seen all the folks enjoying our fine sport, and do what he did. Someone could have been hurt or killed, including the DA that was running the boat! The last thing I want to do is try and save a life while I'm on the water relaxing catching fish.
I would be troubled to hear that this guy was a fly fisherman. I have never met a fly fisherman that would do such a thing. I understand that I don't own my river and he had just as much right to be there as I did, but I guess the rule "do unto others as you would have them to do to you", does not apply in this world as it once did. There's no fish in the Clinch river worth getting killed over or killing some/hurting someone over.
Rod, it sounds worse than I was thinking...

Did you get a boat number or description. I am pretty fluent with most TWRA and TVA Officers. So; I would definitely let them know about this incident. I am worried about someone getting hurt on the water. Lets work together to help make sure this does not happen.
