"Nothing so needs reforming as other people's habits.

One of my favorite Mark Twain quotes. Guess I've never had a bad fishin bud.

My post was in no way directed at you. Most all of us get a little judgemental in some form or another. I do think of the Twain quote often, as I am certain I am an annoyance to others at one time or another.

I know that wasn't aimed at me. I am the guy who thinks everyone else on the road is a idiot, then I ask myself what people think of me.

Im new and learning. So far my biggest peeve is getting rushed by others or feeling that im in the way.

Another is my penchant for my fishing "treats". My slim jim is mine and my snickers is mine, they are my good luck routine. So please dont ask, you'll ruin it for both of us.

Hi lurker,

I quit hurrying when I was 30 some years younger, let the others hurry and don't tell about the treats you have stashed.

for me fishing is not about catching, i can toss that fly a thousand times, catch nothing and still come off the water with the smile i cant get anywhere. my only pet peeve to say is when some one throws their line ( most of the time a worm and bobber on the end) in the part of water that is feeding me the tranquility that i cant get anywhere else

the only other one that comes to mind, is never being satisfied with my arsenal of gear

To add to what I've already said:
These days I see Guys who come Fishing in Their work Gear with all The Reflective Tape Stitched onto them as it's a real Pain & annoying when either The Sun Shines on it or someone shines a Light on it at Night.

my things:

1.) Tangles. Compared to spin fishing, flyfishing generates tangles that are incomparable. All that line, leader, and tippet whipping around occasionally produces a doozy rat's nest.

2.)Going all thumbs. like when a simple knot suddenly takes a bunch of tries.

3.) Realizing you missed an eye when you strung your rod and tied your fly on. Doh!
