Is this the future of fishing (vlogging)?

Everyday there are more and more moronic fishing vlogs popping up on my social media feeds.

Are my future fishing trips doomed to having everyone on the river/lake walking around bla bla blaing into their GoPro?-

In the end though the real moron is me, because I watch them:).

Seems like we're crossing over into an arena where moniker is; 'if a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to capture video and put it up on social media, did it really happen'?

I get it, it's fun to share experiences broadly, that's kind of what we're doing here ya? But I plan to stay grounded in a little place I like to call the real, (not virtual) world.

I'll post vids here and there and peruse and watch content on the web, but I hope to spend most of my life energy where actual trees are falling, not where the videos are being posted.

I don't see why you have a problem with it. Fishing vlogs were an introduction to a wide variety of fishing for me. When circumstances keep me from catching fish myself, I get to live vicariously through said vlogs.

I think they're terrific!!! I highly recommend that more people engage in viewing vlogs, consuming YouTube videos and searching Pinterest. This is bound to make our rivers, lakes and tide waters much less crowded. Please stay home and Google as much as you can. The key to you finding the answer on how to catch that big one is just a mouse click away.

I will say that i have logged many hours watching and rewatching 2 hand steelhead fishing videos when i can't be out myself so even though I have thousands of hours on the river I still love to consume fish porn.

Social media has long been affecting fishing and hiking. Just look at WHC on fb. Once a little known area is shown there, it isn't look before the crowds come and it turns into the new enchantments. The litter, illegal parking and many more usually follow.
