i have witness road rage several times before but saw my first river rage!!
i fish the cumberland river on monday 3 boats in a run of maybe 250 yards long ,everyone was making out just fine no was stepping on anyone toes. flyfisherman and spin fisherman. than all of a sudden here comes this lone flyfisherman in a boat on ever fish hooked he lets out a yell ,wanting to be seen [ i guess] kept coming down the run pulling in front of every boat came and in on me, i didn't say anything to him, i could have take his hat off on my next cast very easy that how close he was. he floated on down to where these 2 spin fisher were ,they had just landed a fish was putting it in a cooler. when all of a sudden he challanges them on keeping fish. saying hey you can not keep these fish. and more words exchanged that should not be typed here. than he rams there boat and challenges them to the bank to settle it. but they told him to go away. i went on by down stream was floating another section when he comes by again this time heading toward my fly line with his outboard of course i let him know he was heading toward my line, he was about 10 ft. from my boat,then he says that i had pulled in front of him. i said how soon we forget that he had pulled in front about 100 yrds up river and i had not said a word to him. by this time i was getting mad by the way he had treated the spin guys which was all uncalled for and threating my line and me . so he goes on and cuts in on another boat about 100 yrds on down the river. this old boy is heading for trouble . he is going to challange the wrong guy and he will become a log in the river. some one will put a boat paddle between his ears. can we not get away from all that anger on the water.] and it might be me . i don,t like to be threated by anyone i'am not one to challange i want turn it down. i fish for enjoyment if you want to keep fish thats all right the regs. says you can . does this give flyfishermen a bad name.
