My view Fly fishing, in fact fishing in any form and it's participants are a microcosm of our society in general. We all have the same issues we struggle with in the rest of our live. Bias, discrimination, waste, egotism, arrogance, rude behavior, disregard for laws, etc. None of us are saint, some are certainly sinners. Should we continue our self-righteous grousing about others, NO. Fishing, from my knothole is an art. Practiced often enough, it transports me to a zen-like world where I'm detached from the bulls--t that surrounds me. I often spend hours that seem like only minutes after they pass. To take the time to pick apart someone elses practice of this art in assinine. I come here to learn more, to share experiences, and broaden my appreciation for the sport. I welcome others views and insights that make me think. I don't welcome their insults and judgements.
