Yesterday....

---
Yahoo1: "Looks like you're on to something there?"
Me: "I was onto a 20 inch rainbow until you walked right over that bank he was holding on and spooked him."
Yahoo1: "Oh you were fishing this bank?"
Me: "Yeah, that's why I was creeping here casting over and over again."
Yahoo1: "My bad. What have you been catching them on?"
Me: "Salmon flies."
Yahoo1: "Great thanks."


Yahoo2 carrying a tackle box and spin rod looking really pissed off just stomps right over the bank I'm sight fishing a nice one on (spooking him) and says nothing.

Am I the only one with etiquette? I don't remember this happening so often fishing back in Wyoming, Idaho and Montana, but then again, that was 20 years ago.

dallasdb: Yeah it was pretty obvious I was fishing that bank. I was on the same bank maybe 35' below where the fish was holding casting into the lie. Nothing but open field; plenty of walking space to go around.


I hear you others on CO. Admittedly I was surprised when moving here how scarce the outdoor resources are. Fisherman up your ass on the water and have to book camping sites months in advanced just to get something.

c'est la vie I guess.

This thread has potential! :biggrin1:

The average person out there has no clue how seriously some of us take our fishing. Maybe we are the yahoos taking a leisurely activity too seriously?

Who said the spooked fish didn't bite, or that I wasn't fishing with powerbait to begin with?
Assumptions based on the following:
-profile picture with vest and tiny net
-you commented you were using salmon flies
-you commented that you were casting over and over

My bad if I was wrong. I like the captain American powerbait best. What kind were you using?

Just throw a snagging hook at the fish. Or fish the spot in skimpy lingerie next time. Most fishermen are right wing homophobes and will be horrified at the sight of a transvestite doing an activity reserved for fellow Jesus freaks... Not shims of Satan.

Yeah the salmon fly hatch has been killer all year; usually size 26.
For powerbait I like "jarOeggs" and "fertile mertile".
