It’s just fishing, how can you say that. There is nothing on earth that brings the same kind of joy. For most steelheaders it becomes a passion. Maybe that’s why some feel the need to force there ideals onto others. For me there is nothing worse than to be in a run grinding into the perfect cast and step rhythm to be low holed buy another angler. Most the time it is a spoon chucker that makes a couple casts in the bucket and leaves. It’s an education issue and for me usually ends up in a confrontation. I try not to let it get to me but it always does. I am sure that is where the perception that some have for us “so called traditionalist” comes from. It was never a problem 15 years ago, most the time you had the river to your self. Times are changing, you new to the sport need to learn the ropes and us old farts need to lighten up a bit. It’s all about respect.
