They then apologized, and backed up, and proceed to walk too close to my wife in the pool she was fishing. If they pushed her out of the pool, I would have really came unglued, but they moved on and kept on going down river. After a while you could tell that they likely were talked to again by the next batch of anglers a quarter of a mile or so downriver, because they eventually walked back upstream and by us. This time walking way back in the brush. SEE, THEY LEARNED!!!! I often wonder about my moments when I have had to talk with anglers about unethical actions, but I take my fish very seriously, and I want to have these resources for future generations to come.

Tight Lines to All!!!
