Here is my Q. I smoke. I smoke while I'm driving to a river (and my fishing pole in the car), I smoke on my way back, I leave the pole in the car (and buts in an ashtray). Next day I sit in the car and say "damn, it stinks here" then I'm smoking on my way to the river... Does it affect my fishing? Do fish "don't like" that smell? Do I need to change my fishing line and keep it "smoke free"? Or maybe fish don't care about that smell as long as it's not a "smell of live creature"? I mean I catch fish from time to time. But maybe I would catch more fish and more often?
