I really do not think any of my friends here are snobs.
I have always been more of a Marina person,
than the Yacht Club type.
In fact I have gotten in trouble in a few different Great Lakes Yacht Clubs.
CYC comes to mind...
But again that is another story...
Ha, thats funny. Dude, fly fishing is the same as "yachting". From the outside they seem like snobs, and there are a lot of snobs in both sports. But I guarantee you every yacht club has some punks hanging out in the back of the boatyard smoking a J and raiding coolers for old beers...ask me how I know! And I too have been busted at CYC!
I don't care how people fish, but I hate the "I haven't had a pull in 5 days" excuse. I'm there for 2 reasons; the experience of hanging out in incredible places with cool people, and the challenge of catching fish. For me bobbicating detracts form both of those experiences. If you don't get a pull it just makes it that much better when you finally do.
That said, I look at it this way. If I went to my wifes family reunion and one of the guys there was a bead/gear/bait/whatever fisherman I would be stoked to get to talk fishing with somebody. Plain and simple...
