I get the same responses, mostly from friends that don't fish. I'm not opposed to people taking/eating fish, personally speaking - having tried them a few times over the years - I just don't like the taste of stream trout all that much. I'm 100% C&R with respect to fly-fishing.

Ice fishing on the other hand... well, that's fish fry season in our house. I like to chase up panfish ('gills, perch, crappie, white bass) and they eventually find their way onto the fillet board.
