Let me start out by saying I love to flyfish. Also I enjoy the company of some flyfishermen. But I have noticed some people that act like we are some elite group of over confident pompass jerks. They know who they are. Flyfishing is beautiful in its purest form but that dosnt mean Im better than the guy next to me with a spinning outfit. I dont need a $1000 rod or a $50000 hybrid suv to be a "real flyfisherman". I hate seeing people looking down on someone else for wearing $25 waders and a $100 rod. Or for keeping a reasonable amount of fish to eat. (gasp) Some people act like we couldnt possibly care about fish unless we throw them all back. I do catch and release but I shouldnt be made to feel guilty if I want to eat some of my catch either. How do you guys deal with the "none holier than I" attitudes I run into on the river all the time? I feel like smacking them and shoving them back into their land rover. Keep it simple. Have fun. Share your sport. Thanks for letting me vent.
