It's a novelty and lasts about 30 to 45 minutes at the trout parks. After that folks either have their 5 and leave or get bored and walk off.I've seen pictures of this kind of "fishing", before.....doesn't look like fun to me. Too many people, too close together.
There is always some idiot fly casting to the trout that we’re eating dog food the night before while standing shoulder to shoulder. He will be tangled up or hook you in 37 seconds. But he is wearing a sweet felt hat.It's a novelty and lasts about 30 to 45 minutes at the trout parks. After that folks either have their 5 and leave or get bored and walk off.
It's really more of a community event the first few days of season. Amazingly, most folks are pretty courteous and everyone seems to have a good time.
I’ve seen it in Alaska.
Openers for Minnesota this year.Many years ago I was in Minnesota on what I later learned was the opening day of fishing season. Absolute madhouse around Mille Lacs Lake. People everywhere, boats everywhere. I didn’t know what was going on and just thought people up there were insane. When I realized there was actually a fishing season, I was sure of it. I can’t imagine growing up and not being able to drop a hook in every creek or pond I happened upon.
