I am in complete congruence with your sentiment. For the most part you'll see courteous etiquette displayed around the rivers here, however like in every walk of life, there is the 10% factor. One out of ten guys will make it miserable for everyone else by hogging the pools, and staying until he's hooked his 2 or 4 fish, what ever the law allows. This can be off-putting for a non-local, come-from-away sport fisherman, who paid a good dollars worth of hard earned money, to come enjoy the opportunity to hook a fresh Atlantic in our bountiful river systems. Shameful to say but that 10% is most always 100% local.
Tight lines!
