    Re: Drift boat etiquette

    Just curious- are u saying this is poor form bc stilesville is wade water and shouldn't be floated/fished from a boat for an extended period, especially in these flows? Or are u saying its ridiculous they are anchored next to each other?

    Just curious, if they were wade fishermen in the same pool for 4 hours, would you also be posting about poor form?

    Re: Drift boat etiquette

    I think the sitting and doing nothing for 4 hours irks me. If they are waiting for rising fish, why does someone who might want to nymph the spot have to go somewhere else. I have absolutely no problem with anyone fishing a spot for 4 hours, drift boat or no drift boat.

    First to the spot has the water i dont see the issue, especially at the farm pool which has been the most crowded pool on the river for several years now. U gotta get there early and lock up your spot- and when im waiting for risers the last thing anyone wants is someone beating up the water w a nymph rig and spooking the fish.

    And when you say real fly fishermen, you mean the ones who are wearing waders up to their necks with the 20lb vest on with 16 spools of tippet material that will never be used, the gink bottles, etc... Cuz you know... if you're a fly fisherman, you might as well look like everyone else even if it's 88 degrees out!

    Re: Drift boat etiquette

    If someone is in a spot you want to fish, go somewhere else. There are a gazillion miles of river up there, and the flows are good.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.
