I need people to stay away from me when flyfishing purely for safety reasons. The way I cast, if someone gets within 50 yards of me, they're taking thier life into thier own hands. If I don't hook them, they will probably have a permanent hearing loss from the concussion of my flies and line hitting the water. Also, there is a danger of them being washed downstream from the water displacement of my casts and mending, I've been known to raise a 4 ft. wake. Surfers used to follow me around and wait for me to cast!

Last time I was fly fishing on the Fla. coast, the Navy asked me to stop because there was a submarine and several destroyers a mile or two off the coast having exercises and my casting was interfereing with thier SONAR!

Semper Fi!
