How many streams,creeks,rivers....have you already fished?
 
Maybe another useless and silly poll but a funny one!This afternoon,I was tidying papers when I found a sheet with the list of rivers I had already fished:fishing:.As it was made many years ago I tried to complete it remembering all these places where I went fishing...and I found 58 names!:eek:I'm not sure I can do the same with the names of my girlfriends:icon_wink but I'm sure there aren't 58!:secret:
Ps...lakes and ponds are NOT included:icon_wink:icon_wink

In IL I have fished almost every major creek and river from the Wisconsin border to Champaign, IL. Too many to name and that is only one state. I still got Wisconsin, Minnisota, Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, Tennesse, and Ontario Canada to name. I have a life long list of rivers I want to fish oneday, at least 200 different rivers on that list.

I've always felt that there were two types of fly fishermen
'Campers' and 'explorers'
Campers like to fish where they're comfortable. They know the terrain. They know every rock, every hole, every pool, and can probably call the fish by name.
Explorers get bored fishing the same places, they're never satisfied. They always need to see what's around the next bend. They'd rather get skunked than fish the same spot over and over.

I'm an explorer :rolleyes:

Jean Paul,

Your question is not silly at all but hard to answer while still hoping to be taken seriously. hundreds, a thousand, I haven't a clue, since I started traveling to fish in 1979 I have put my flies in as many rivers, creeks, lakes and oceans as I could in 46 states (USA) and 9 provinces (Canada) anything that swam was game.

Going by Rip's analysis I'm a bit of both, explorer & camper among other things.

Sure a Casanova or Dom Juan (of rivers,creeks and oceans)like you can't answer this question:icon_razz

Ive only hit one so far.
An I got skunked. Only fished lakes an ponds most my life an that was with bait cast. Now Im learning to cast a fly half way decent.
I tried the auglaize river here in Ohio for about an hour. Not sure If river fishing is my cup of tea.

Here is a question for all of you. SOme on told me that the land owners on both side of the river own the land under the river. So in essence if you are wading you are trespassing. But not if you are in a boat.
Any truth to that. Sounds like a pain in the but to get permission from every one to wade a stream.

In general, that's true in the west, not so much in the east.
Different states, different laws.
