I can appreciate what you are saying, but it seems that every time the subject of bad behaviour by the "pros" comes up, one "defense" in particular also comes up. The one that seems to seems to suggest that the arrogant attitudes and behaviour by the "pros" is OK because "look at how much money we spend in the area!" Sorry, but it just doesn't fly. Money, no matter how much, doesn't excuse it. No way!
It just isn't a good argument to support rude, unethical behaviour on the water. I think one of the best things that could happen to "pro" fishing would be for them to quit supporting that kind of behaviour. I always find it strange that only a very few pros actually stand up and say anything about it, let alone as a group or an organization. Ignoring the problem is a big part of the problem.
Thanks for the reply!
Good luck and good fishin'
