Things you notice at the trout stream every year....
I call this one, the bobber in the fast water guy;
Ever see these people at the stream? Dead giveaway they don't know a thing about trout fishing.....Fast moving water, and here comes this guy with a bobber(we call them floats in these parts) the size of a soft ball on his line six inches from his hook. Tosses his line in and within seconds its up against the shore, and he's casting again. Within a few casts he's snagged up on something. Then he's gone.
Hardware on every low hanging limb;
I could equip a tackle box with some of the junk I see dangling from low hanging limbs. From bobbers(see above), to spinners, to half a spool of line. My dad used to call it eagle fishing. When somebody would cast and get tangled up in the trees.
The two cast wanderers;
Each and every year I see guys who will waltz into the hole, make two casts, then they're downstream in the next hole, two more casts, then they're gone. Impatient I guess, or they like to walk more than fish.
The your side of the creek guy;
There isn't a year that goes by that I don't have this happen. I catch a fish, then maybe another, then within seconds there are lines from across the creek being tossed two feet in front of me.....What they fail to realize is, I'm casting and catching the fish on their side of the creek;
The right next to you guy;
Kinda ties in with the your side of the creek guy. The creek is wide open for miles, yet numbnuts walks in and stands literally two feet away from you.....
The "what are you using" guy;
I catch a fish, then another, and then right next to me guy says " hey what are you using", when he can clearly see that I'm putting corn on my hook. I always tell him "peas".
Please feel free to add......
BTW - I was gonna mention the kid "borrowing" a hook but I got hammered on that one last year, so we won't go there again..
