On the other hand, I've met several very kind, honest, generous, hard- working people that just happen to be $loaded$ and fish with very expensive fly rods.

And....I've also been in at least a couple of locally owned fly shops here in (where I live) where I was treated more like a nuisance rather than someone who might want to trade cash for goods.

There seems to be a stereotype that people who are "wealthy" have obviously found their money by way of cheating or stealing and therefore don't deserve anything they worked for.......or at the very least, consider themselves better than everyone else.

I'm not crying sympathy for the financially-responsible, I'm just saying money isn't required before one can act like a complete and total !&%$@#$%!
