Default Pet Peeve's.............

You know, there is always that thing or two that a fishing buddy does that just irritates the heck out of you.

Like:
False casting to much
Takes 30 minutes putting on waders
Wanting a hero shot with a 6 inch rainbow
Talking about spouse/problems
Never has floatant
Never has flies

Maybe that's why, when i am fishing for fun...i am usually by myself.

Ok, What grinds your gears??

Only have one other fly fisherman here. He's a better caster than I am so I can't fault him on that. He takes many of my 'hero shots'. Shows up in his waders. No spouse. Have supplied a few flies but don't mind that. Neither of us use floatant. ........... Guess I don't have it to bad. He's kind of competitive. Not me though.....

When I let him fish my rod and he hands it back with the grip all wet. And we usually snag each others' lines at least once per trip but I guess that has become the norm

..... wanting to leave early.
"I need to go home and mow the lawn"

My regular fishing partner and I have fished together since 1969 and I've known him since first grade.
I've fished with other people of course but he and I fit well together and always have. We don't hang out together, only fish.

I have always fished alone, don't know why just have. For the most part I don't mind fishing with others, hmmm gonna have to think about this some more.

Usually fish alone; however, that might change since I retired and don't have to be around hundreds of people all day.
