I think you watched grumpy old men one time too many.
I fish alot, I tie my own flies, I fly fish, I hit the high rivers and fish for artic grayling and bug ass trout, I put in a good 5 or 6 miles on a river every time I fish and im not talking about flowting down the river I mean I walk the bastard chest dep cold water, fishing up and then down the river. I backpack miles and miles into bear country, I fish the lakes near where I camp and lay around and enjoy nature.
anyone whos never done any real fishing, is missing out, I actually pitty you that you would think its sad for anyone to fish.
even sitting ina boat fishing Im drinking with my buddies, laughing and havig a good time, when its that, its not about the fish, we go out and with no fish in the boat at the end we still had a great fucking time.
Let's agree to respect each others views, no matter how wrong yours may be.
