    Rob, are we talking Steelhead fishermen here? Because we all know that those of us who pursue the trout in its non anadromous form are all perfect gentlemen.

    Swearing doesn't bother me. I swear plenty. A rant on angler language would be better spent on new anglers butchering river names to make their own river-nick-names and talking about "ripping lips" and "steel faces."

    So stop fishing near other people. I almost never see another soul when I fish.

    American language and culture is coarsening Rob. We're in a race with ourselves devolving to the least common knuckle dragger. Since it's devolution, it's not hard to keep up with. In fact it's harder to stay above it. Good luck.

    "Steel faces," the language of assholes.

    I believe I can blend in to most groups, regardless of their use of language, abbreviations, angling techniques, generation or beverage preferences. Sometimes I blend, some times I rebel, sometimes I walk away.

    A lot of cool things can happen around a campfire after a long cold day of fishing, or mid day on a gravel bar during a lunch and warmup break. My mind is open...most of the time.

    I think most people who are crude are trying to be funny or entertaing and just aren't. It's totally possible to be crude and funny but it's the lowest common denominator of humor so most of it just comes off as stale.

    It's ok. Someday you'll hit puberty and it will all make sense: the swearing, the drinking, sex. You may be surprised and actually like sex.

    There is nothing wrong with sitting around a campfire after a day of fishing with friends. We all drink, swear, pick our asses, give each other a bad time. If watching videos turns you off, don't watch them. There is a button there that you don't have to click on.

    Some people need to cuss to keep from exploding. I'm one of them. Besides I'm old and old men don't give a damn what we say anymore. So there. Fuck it.
