Fund this on a BB thought I would pass it on here:

Stream Fishing Etiquette

A true fisherman goes fishing not only to catch fish but also to enjoy nature's gift of clear sweet water, the forest, and all the creatures that live in them.

He thinks of the other fellow who wants to catch fish as much as he does by:

Letting the fisherman who arrives at the pool first to finish it without interference.

Sharing the water. After a reasonable time on a pool he can either have the waiting person join him; tell him to pass through and fish below; or vacate the pool entirely in favor of the other fisherman.

Allowing the fellow fisherman room to fish so that his cast and drift are not interfered with and the fish are not disturbed.

Giving room to another fisherman who hooks a fish near him.

A TRUE FISHERMAN PRACTICES CATCH AND RELEASE IN ORDER TO CONSERVE THE FISHERY.

Thanks, Rich
