Poor pouty baby.You involved yourself in something that had nothing to do with you.
You went out of your way to be an ass and got shit back.
Who could have thought that would happen.

Now you whine and play the victim.
Blame RFA for you own actions.

I have no doubt that swinging for these fish is spectacularly rewarding and well worth the long hours it takes to get grabs. I desperately want to try it on my next trip. But this was my first steelhead trip, it was my birthday, and I live a long way from steelhead water. It was my intention to get as many steelhead as possible to eat the golden stonefly nymphs that I'd been so stoked to tie in the previous weeks, and my guide was happy to help me do it. If you feel the need to bust my balls about that, knock yourself out.

I do a lot of dry fly fishing and sometimes find myself looking down my nose just a bit when I pass a guy with a bobber. I do not, however, stop him and tell him he's not getting the full experience cause he's not fishing dry. Even if it might be true, I run the risk of coming across as a bit of a douche to a fellow fisherman.
That was a classy response that needs to be quoted again. Good on ya, man. Nice report and congrats on your first steelhead!

Backcountry camping is better. Can still be bus[…]

So you want to own a flyshop?
