I think you will find the attitude amongst most anglers, before I started fly fishing the monthly meetings of a couple of the coarse clubs I was in left you feeling very down, Brits are happy unless they have something to moan about.
I participate in forums and social media groups relating to other forms of angling. I've found that there can be some negativity and criticism. The vast majority of these comments center around fish welfare. People having a go at others for not using an unhooking mat or taking pictures showing dry hands or standing up etc. But the negativity doesn't come close to what I witness on here.
