If I could afford a nice drifter, I would carry a 12 gauge slug gun in my boat like the Maine Lobsterman do. Heck I probably wouldn't have to shoot his boat full of holes...just the sound of a pump gun being racked usually sends 'em packn!

What kind of boat was he in, did you get the numbers from his boat? I fish the river and have not had any trouble.

As some one who spinfishes regularly, I can say that I've had more than my fair share of run-ins with just these sort of people. Besides the fact that I release every fish I catch, I also fish with artificial lures. (rapalas, spinners, etc.)

This infornation however, is of little consequense to about 25% of the flyfishing community that I have come in contact with on the water. It seems to me that I recieve an unfair amount of dirty looks from flyfisherman everywhere I go, and a suprising amount of confronational remarks to boot. Most of them don't even seem to care even if they do see me throwing artificials, they just look at my rod and say "hmmmf".

What suprises me most is I am 24 years old, 6'3" 200 lbs and atheletically built and the guy that I always fish with is as tall as me, but built like a SEC linebacker. Truthfully, we are usually enjoying ourselves so much on the water that when someone makes a confontational remark to us we are so taken aback that we just laugh about it or blow it off.

I know that evey flyfishermen I have told about some of the near scrums we have gotten in always say "well that doesn't represent the majority of us" or "well they probably just thought you were a baitfishermen", but to be honest with all of you, the more people that I see ack like that it really makes me wonder.

Fishing Is An All American Sport. Not All Americans Have A Masters Degree And Smoke A Pipe. Not All Americans Have A Forth Grade Education And Spit Into A Cup.
Many Americans Love Getting On The Water As Relaxation And To Spend Time With Their Children Or Grandchildren.
Just Enjoy Nature And Get Along With Other Americans.....no Matter What They Use To Catch Fish. Catching Fish Is Fun...and You Know It! You Would Not Be Here If You Didn't Love The Sport.
Treat Others Like You Would Like To Be Treated....especially When Relaxing...

I'm with you on that one, believe me when I'm fishing the last thing I ever think about is what kind of rod some other guy is fishing with. So why is it that the style of rod I use even crosses anyone elses mind while they are out there?

**************Ditto!****************

I also second Mr. Spey's comment "There's plenty of room", there's plenty of water, there's plenty of idiots out there, and yes there's always some one in the crowd to mess it up for everyone! Gainfull employment! That's the way I like to think of it! For someone out for there day of recreation that acts that way imagine how they are at their place of employment and their home enviornment! I've have seen a few familiar faces traveling the middleprong! Kill them with kindness and time will tell, trust me on that statement. The ol what goes around comes around! There's always at least one empty seat in the back of my car!

Don't spend your free day getting mad at some idiot, just worry about catching something that'll bite!
