During difficult situations in my youth I probably would have continue to fish these types of waters, but now the aggravation and risks do not appear worth it for me.

I just want a peaceful day fly fishing on the river in some solitude with even a low percentage chance of catching a fish. The aggravation of confronting these types of situations just does not seem worth it to me personally.

I guess I have become a wimp as I age. I remember when I use to chase after the drivers that cut me off or flipped me off, but the risks and aggravation are just not worth it. You never know who is packing heat or another weapon these days and who is unbalanced emotionally that will use it against you.

Just check the Washington DC area now. We have employees that are afraid to leave their homes until they are caught.

Please be careful in these types of situations.
