This conversation is used with full permission of my very good friend Wes G, he was burned by being nice and then breaking the cardinal rule, sharing the good spots!!
Wes G Lesson learned... don't share your fishing spots with ANYONE!
Ray Fairweather Damnit man that is what I been trying to tell you!! No pictures with background, no pictures on this devil Facebook or Flynfishing Calgary and no talking.
Wes Giurissevich I don't put pics on forums anymore. And apparently you can't even tell guys that you think are buddies because when you say to them "let me know if your going out this weekend and I will meet you out there" and then they don't actually do that because they don't want the fish to get "spread too thin"
Ray Fairweather Hmm I think I smell a front page for sexyloops coming on, I have started writing again and this sounds like a cautionary tale if I ever heard one!!
Ray Fairweather I guess they snuck out without you so they can score and not share. !! Sigh.
Wes Giurissevich More or less... and then when you say "hey I understand how this goes, just don't pull up this winter on one of the spots I showed you last winter, and expect to be welcome to fish with me, because you wont be", and get told "its not your water, I will fish where I want, when I want"
Ray Fairweather Ohh wow. Wes can I use this as an example in my front page?
Wes Giurissevich please do, and send me the link when you write it
I started writing again after a year off and divorce.
Wes Giurissevich yeah needless to say, I bid him a farewell as well
Not this Friday , Tiana is posting hers but the next Friday, I normally do the Friday front pages, last one I did the Thursday.
especially when it was to a complete newbie...
Ray Fairweather Ohh this is a newb, and he burned you. Damn what an ass!!
Wes Giurissevich it's actually an ex girlfriend (who I am still friends with)'s brother who was a newb at the time
Wow, this is Flynfishing, so he has not got a clue about the difference between gear chuckers and Flynfishing.
Sorry dude, but there are some that deserve time and effort to get them going in fly fishing , but mostly I just help then let them find the hot spots on their own...
Wes Giurissevich yeah but it doesnt help much when you have a girlfriend at the time saying "take my brother out" he wants to come fishing with us so bad and he really has no idea what he is doing"
Ray Fairweather Ohh yea stuck, and sucks, I bet he really did have an idea what he was doing, you don't get that big of a bad attitude by accident.
Wes Giurissevich HAHAHA
Ray Fairweather I live in Calgary now and have hesitated to fish the bow because of the asshats.
Wes Giurissevich really, i didn't know that you moved
Ray Fairweather One thing I can't stand is a bad attitude.
Wes Giurissevich and I am sure there is a lot of that up there!
Ray Fairweather Yep lots, but I have been hanging out at Fish Tales fly shop. Getting to know some of the better guys, and belong to the hook and hackle club up here
Wes Giurissevich Nice... did you get out much this Summer?
Ray Fairweather Mostly exploring due to the floods etc, went north to Grande Cache area and south to Montana. Good summer but could use less rain next year.
hahaah thats for sure... I had a lot of terrible days...
Ray Fairweather Damn , haha I broke my wrist in 2003, and had my shoulder operated on in 2001 so I know what you're saying and it was my right side both times.
This falls off to talking about how the floods affected the fly fishing. I did notice that WesG and I both avoided giving the names of rivers and spots that we consider favourites..
No joke at the end of this one, it is just too damn sad that respect and honour is dying.
