Default Re: Fishing etiquette! Do people have any?

what a hot topic
after these fishermen-woman someone will need to collect the garbage (cans of corns, bags & etc.) if you do not, nobody does it
between fly-anglers sometime also there is no respect...
love flyfish in wild places, nobody around, you & nature!

Perhaps the worst form of bad etiquette is when guides with clients in tow disrespect other anglers. Last year, I was on the Dream Stream in Colorado, minding my own business, enjoying some dry fly action, and all of the sudden out of nowhere, a guide and 4 clients completely top-holed me, about 50 feet upstream, above where my casts were. The guide didn't even acknowledge my existence, but interestingly, one of the clients did. I was forced out, reeled up, and off the next spot I went. Maybe that is a tactic I'm not familiar with by some guides.

On an uncrowded stream or lake if someone crowds me I walk away. If I find myself working in another angler's direction, I go around...way around.

On a stream or lake where anglers are "spaced out" (no, not like that...) I try to talk with people, asking if I'm disturbing them...and I walk away a lot.

I came close to hooking a child on a back cast once and that lesson stayed with me. I'm whipping a dangerous article in the air and have a responsibility to be careful...so I make sure it's safe to fish before starting up.

The idea of putting a fly in the air near someone on purpose sounds like assualt to me.

HAH, in my waters I frequent on the tribs of Lake Huron (Canada side)....float rodders are my bane. As I have vented many times here about...crowding, rude, polluters, as#clowns, etc....seems the common thread running through these sect of 'fishers'.

To the point of the quote....for the most part, while I normally am not spey/2 hand casting.....with my 10' single hander, I can usually pick up all the line and lay out without false casing (nymph fishing). When I start to feel crowded....not only to I false cast MUCH MORE....I become erratic and 'apologize' for my 'rookie-ness'....while ensuring i get a wide berth to fish 'my' wedge of water.
