Flossing is just a way for an inexperienced and uneducated angler to fill the freezer. Fishing is fooling a fish to bite pure and simple. Flossing is snagging, and is at the same level as netting, only you get to try to reel the fish in, and if you are lucky it will be hooked in the side and you will have an even better fight! The guy probably bonks the fish anyways. You tell me there isn't a problem here with it, if anyone has witness the crap going on at the Fraser or Vedder the last 10 seasons, you should disagree. Long leaders, drift drift, set the hook every drift, snagged fish, oh bonk it anyways. I would say there was 10% fishing ethically, 90% had no idea. I have participated in bouncing when it first gained popularity, and now, after putting the time into other methods of fishing, bbing is the least rewarding. Barbed hooks, guys not tagging their spring and coming back down a couple hours later, long leaders, snags, loosing lead all day, sore arms, casting out of turn, major tangle ups, shoulder to shoulder, bickering, swearing, guy getting sacked when the fish spat the hook, that was funny, not for him. Fishing out of boundary, keeping foul hooked fish. Leaving garbage all over the river, people killing the wrong fish that have no retention...people going over limits, the list goes on, and now this happens on rivers with great visibility where fish bite regularly and aggressively. Guy kills wild steelhead, swearing it is a spring. GARBAGE EVERYWHERE! Oh and don't you just love it when you find your own little chunk of real state away from the crowd, you start banging off coho after coho, short floating good roe, and then...10 guys with 10 ft leaders crowd you out, okay all yours, I go over there, repeat...10 more crowd, aw-some! I took the time to show the very few that would listen how to shorten up, set up correctly, and it was quite rewarding to see them bang off fish. They were happy to and quite amazed that their friends had showed them how to fish and floss and that is the way we fish out here. BBing is taking over and destroying the ethics of fishing on our local rivers.
