Re: Fishing etiquette! Do people have any?
I was fishing my favorite stretch of river last year, during a big spinner fall, 30 minutes before dark. The dream hour. Anyways, there were fisherman stretched out about every 50-100 yards, in this pretty small river, 15-25 feet wide, 1-3 feet deep tops. You had a spot & everyone seemed to be respecting where you set up shop. From up river some clod comes dregging down the middle of the river RIGHT THREW everyones fishing spots ON his way back to the lodge about 1/2 mile down river.
Now, when he got to me, I stopped him cold & directed him off the river & to the path that made its way TO HIS destination. He was like, "can't I just walk past you, I won't get in your way?" & I simply told him, "I'm fishing these fish, you come by me & those fish are leaving, please take the path." Some people, not all people, are disrespectful, clueless, & selfish.
