I see many people fishing with bright pink, red, or yellow, shirts why would you wear that fishing? Is it the spanish fly look? also I see alot of fly fisherman wet wading with there fanny packs on. There's no doubt Joe Dirt and Johnny Buttnut both fly fish and spin fish and forever seem like they will clash when close to each other.

FD, you'll note the very last thing I said was "imo", which with an open mind, is no different than what you have to say about the situation. Just saying.


Let us be clear. I saw that (It was actually JMO), and we all are COMPLETELY entitled to your opinion regardless if it is ignorant or not. But nobody ever said that opinions are unquestionable.

And I noticed you did not answer my question, or the one from PPFLyer.

My bad. Opinion remains the operative word, never the less.

Alright, I don't always look like a slob when fishing. I cleaned myself up for the steelhead trip last year. Here I am looking the part, and note the expensive looking split bamboo rod.

But I assure you that I have less than 100 bucks into that rod not counting labor, and both legs of those waders leaked giving me the feel of wet wading.

GG took the picture, and I have to admit I look good. As it turns out, I did replace the vest.

I'm not up on all the literature, but I taught my son and a couple friends to FF and always included ethics lessons.

I have, during crowded conditions. Never when I could move up or down a way and give some room. Still, some folks are used to fishing close to others and actually feel another angler is selfish in not accepting the close company.

If it's your friend or someone you know I could see that yes a stranger I never went for that crowded hatch I guess yes but I never did either everyone's different I have no shame in being selfish and fishing farther from people.

I just noticed this thanks to Jack.

Books?

Maybe this is the problem. I didn't learn "the art" from books. But I'm betting what you are (likely) implying is right. Books do not cover this. Shame on you Troutbert for not including that in your book. Then again, maybe you did. I do have a copy of your book, I just won't admit to reading it.

I learned "the art" more than 40 years ago by figuring it out on my own. As far as courtesy, I apply common sense and a derivation of the golden rule.

I give everyone the same courtesy that I would expect plus a little extra, and let me tell you, I expect a lot. But when someone else violated that, which is very rare, I find it easier to just move than it is to stuff them under a rock.

Point is, nobody has ever accused me of crowding them while fishing no matter what my fishing methods at the time were or what clothes I was wearing. And it isn't just because of my size. Well, ... I did hook my little brother by the ear lobe once, but that was his fault. Besides, I did pull it out.

Jack figures it is OK as long as he offers a reach around.

I have a big bulky vest like the one pictured, what the heck is wrong with that??? Can't fit too many beers in a manpurse ya know.

I've never been crowded out of a hole either. Course when I see someone getting close I quickly change to my second favorite water activity.......skipping stones. I guess no one ever taught me the proper stone skipping etiquette though, how many meters should I be from fisherman when going for my new record of distance/skips??

Lets be honest here though. Ya made a thread to complain about littering and crowding bait fisherman. They aren't all like that.......hell most of em are too drunk to wander anymore than 3 feet from their camp chair ;)

lol I always thought one of the greatest parts of fishing was to get away from people and the world. I fish with guys but prefer to fish alone most of the time. I had Joe Humphrey come in by me a couple years ago on Penns have to say was pretty cool seeing him fish one of the few times it wasn't bothersome.
