Is it just more or is the fisherman giving the middle finger?

Why be negative. That is what we do on the Trent. A freindly greeting and avoid the guy's lines. It is only a small minority of anglers that are hostile. It is just that they make more noise.

I would suggest that they aren't being negative, they are being humorous through the use of parody. Practically everyone on here has experienced the extremes of "get orf my river" through to "hi, having a nice paddle? - Yes thanks, caught anything yet?" There is very little water about at the minute, so fun is sought wherever it can be found!

When I was swimming in the River Severn at Shrewsbury a couple of weeks ago I had a very nice chat with an angler - he was interested in the water temp and wasn't bothered about my swimming there. Looks like anglers in general have accepted the large number of open water swimmers now taking to our rivers.

My sister lives in Shrewsbury so I usually at get least a couple swims in the Severn when I stay with her.

I could name some others who swim in the Severn but they bought me beers to keep my mouth shut!
