I found the same situation years ago when I spoke (on behalf of GBTU) at a similar meeting for the removal of the Oyster River dam in Durham. We in TU had a small presence but most people wanted to keep the dam, quite vociferously, in fact. One little old lady actually yelled at me after my speech.
It is a plain fact, however, that downstream fishing with a non-imitative fly (lure, in the British sense) does not mix comfortably with upstream imitative fishing...I'll stay out of the argument about whether this technique is really fly fishing. In terms of interest, it is for me ahead of most downstream fishing and spinning. And I've already opined that spinning is better than staying at home with the television set.
