    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.....

    on the other hand, if somebody needs something , i'll normally oblige.

    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

    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.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

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