Ronan's report

Friday 5th October, 2012

Like many of you, I am often asked for information on a particular location, along with flies, tactics, and a whole lot of what to do and what not to do. I don't mind this at all and willingly oblige at all times. Over the years, I realised that email requests are inefficient for me as I spend sometimes hours writing up stuff. Furthermore, I realised that it is a lot of my IP (intellectual property) and content from my publications that I am putting out there. On realisation of these things, I still willingly impart information, but ask the requester to rather call me instead. Now I find this more efficient in terms of time, even if I spend an hour on the phone, because silly two-finger typing me talks faster than I can type.

Please don't get me wrong, I love sharing my knowledge with anyone who has an inkling of my passion for flyfishing. The fervent hope is that they will take up the sport and get to share in the wonders, joys, people, experiences, exposure, television presenting, radio presenting, travel, etc, etc, etc it has brought to my life. In many ways, someone asking me about something I may have some knowledge on is an affirmation of my existence as a fly fisherman. So, to share any bit of information that I may have is a privilege for me to do so.

What made me think of this topic were two calls in the past week. One was from the owner of a camp I used as a base for my fishing groups. She asked me if she could give my details to a group of ladies who were going fishing and needed some assistance. To which I replied no problem. The second call was from one of the ladies and we spent about 30mins on the phone. She ended the conversation by thanking me (many times) and said that she will call me when she returns to give me feedback on her trip.

Not being a general pessimist, I thought to myself "I'm sure you will". With the hundreds of people I have assisted with similar requests, I think that only one or two people have ever called me back to give me feedback. So good luck to the group of ladies and I look forward to hearing from them.

Tight lines and screaming reels.
