Thought I would share this story on river etiquette and karma.
Went to bings yesterday very early in the AM hoping to avoid the crowds. Arrived around 3 AM hit the river by 330. Fished for about 30 minutes at almost the very bottom of the rapids section when all the sudden a group of about 9 people or so decides to shove their way into a very small area myself and 2 friends were fishing. People were standing directly behind us others casting over our lines knocking our backpacks over etc. Pretty much being inconsiderate to everyone and everything around them. My friend and I verbally stated how displeased we were with their lack politeness and decided to just move away and avoid the dog and pony show and possibly a fight. We limit out in about 2 hrs for everyone. As Im cleaning our limit I notice a full stringer of fish floating down the river right next to me. I pick it up and toss it onto the bank so I can find out who it belongs to after I finish cleaning. Turns out it was one of the group who decided to take the river over earlier. I didnt tell him I had it and let him search for it for about 30 minutes. Before I left I gave his fish away to a father/daughter on vacation to celebrate her graduation and said jerk was left without his fish.
Karma always gets ya eventually but it was nice to actually see it and be able to make 2 peoples day while the jerk suffered a little.
