First of all I don't even know if I spelled that right? Anyway I was traveling for work and ran into an office full of fly fishermen. I knew this because 7 out of 10 offices had the same TU calendar hanging on their wall that I have. I tried to keep the conversation to business but my partner I was traveling with brought up to these guys that I teach at Orvis. These guys went from "stiff" to we had to start shuffling our schedules because we were there so long talking abaout fishing. The funny thing that I noticed was how these guys sort of turned their noses up when I told them about our upcoming Cod trip? I also told them about some of the techniques I use on the sound to catch big bass and they started riding me when I told them about live lining bunker or chunking bunker heads in deep water. They started in with the fact that they strictly FLY FISH ONLY! On the ride back home my partner and I were talking about why some people look at fly fishermen as "snobs" and from my perspective as a guy who will fishes with fly, bait, plugs..... I could kind of see why we get a bad rep! So what do you guys think?
