Try living in Colorado,, I live in Basalt CO, near the frying pan river,, in the few years i have been here i have only seen one other person spin fishing,, I get stares every time im on the river, yes on the river just like them in waders fishing the same holes with a different rod and reel. Not only do they stare but they talk shit. Now at the same time im not big on bait fishing, worms, powerbait, salmon eggs, etc, but i don't act all shitty to people that are fishing that way, thats just not my style. Oh and the fly shops here!! These people wont say a word to you unless your a fly guy. Love to hear that im not the only one that's looked down upon by these "elitist" anglers.
