Do you carry a gun while fishing? Thanks Shane, and thanks Ibn, for your sane wisdom. Unfortunately, you appear to be in the minority on this thread. Carrying guns while fly fishing has got to be one of the most preposterous actions I can imagine. What the hell does everyone expect to encounter out there that makes having a handgun so compelling and necessary? Hell, Bhudda himself acknowledged that if he had a handgun during his encounter, it could have been far far worse for him than it was. Do you gunmen also take your handguns to Seahawks and Mariners games? Lord knows, there are plenty of crazies there who are quite willing to press their agendas. America is totally out of control when it's flyfishers feel they need to arm themselves.
