In todays fishing report Byron was mentioning all the excitment once built up for opening day of trout season throughout the country that included alot of celeberation the day prior among fishermen. Along that line of thiking I began to recall stories told by earlier generation gentelmen about being in fish camp where folks met their guides if guided, would go off in pairs or alone during the day to fish and everyone met back in camp that night for food, drink, and telling "fish stories". Good times with jokes, advice on fishing, and memories of seasons past are had by all. I guess you could almost call it a fishermens jamboree as groups of friends camped and meet fellas in camps near by kind of socializing I guess. I'm thinking that sort of thing doesn't occur much today in a more fast paced society. Personaly, I think it would be neat to uphold such an interesting tradition/heritage once a year where the opportunity to meet other folks and learn about fly fishing over a camp fire and maybe even actually keeping a few trout to make sure they taste the way there suppossed to would be fun.
What do you think?
