Not at all. Most sailboats look better with a couple of extra sticks poking out of them anyways.....

We actually have about 16 different outfits on ours, from easy-to-use spincasters for the kiddies to h/d Penn and Shimano conventional reels and rods, a bunch of 12-15 lb. spinning combos and 5 fly rods. Plus 3 crates of tackle. But we usually troll only one rod at a time when the sails are up, 'cuz a single hook-up can be a handfull enough, while twin strikes will drive you mad.

BTW, though I enjoy using the flyrods the most, I don't use them if we're hungry. 'Cuz I still suck at it.........

i have been known to cook some of my best on-board meals with fresh caught fish and crabs...i hate when folks think that because you have a sailboat that you are an ascot wearing snob and above fishing. I have found it quite acceptable to fish with my ascot.

Ascot?? Is that some sort of a dog??

I'm very careful in picking jobs where I don't need to wear a coat & Tie...especially the Tie.

They're now made of fibreglass and carbon and graphite. As of the early 80's...............

It is OK on my boat ...

In fact, it was a concession I made to my wife to put rod holders on the stern rails. She is the fisherperson, not me. Using Dipsy-Divers, we troll for salmon when the winds get really light.

What kind of a sailor would care?

Why would you care if it looks good. Damn! Who do you think is looking at you anyway?
