There's a difference between selling and selling out Rob. The difference is class and discretion.
I see very little class anywhere in the fly fishing community these days..
By the way. I am not disagreeing with you much about these guys but I see almost no difference between what they are doing and what, just as an example, what Red's is doing..
Fishing closed waters aside..

I agree with you about these guys but they are doing the same thing everyone else is doing.

For the longest time I completely agreed with you on Reds. Then this summer they self imposed a hoot owl on their trips. Made me think twice about them. They had to cancel some trips and reschedule some - probably wasn't a winning business decision short term. But it did illustrate they aren't just there to whore out on the river.

That describes every fly shop, fly fishing guide and every fly fishing manufacturer.
Not in defense of everyone in the ff business but I assure you that your rush to judge folks you don't know, while quite true to form for you, is well separated from reality. Do you also paint salesmen pimping Pautztkes in a big box store with the same broad brush?

I have nothing against Red's... I was just using them as an example of a fly shop that sold lots of trips..

I have been in the fly fishing industry sone the mid 90s... if I paint the industry with a wide brush I am certainly getting paint on myself.. so the answer to your question is yes.

I pimp out Pueblo reservoir every day.. Why? Because I want to improve peoples lives by helping them have fun and I get to make money doing it just like every fly shop and just like every content creator including the dorks at addicted fishing. They have created a successful business and though they need to read the regs better it seems I have nothing against them.


They have in the past shown some of "my secret spots " they never mention the names of the rivers and they provide good content. Just as I am sure most fly shops have good guide trips.

This is accurate. Is it possible the super cool hip edgy folks at the chum are also going for street cred and wanting to be "the bros in the knows". Highly likely as they are probably just the elitist version of the Adickted crew. How many people will their little call out complete with river name inspire to poach that creek? Nobody knows. Either way it's stupid is as stupid does between two sets of fishing badasses. Two groups of cool guys. One is Filson/Orvis flavor. The other is Skoal/Rockstar flavor. Both handled the situation poorly in their quest for "cool guy" points. Fishing isn't cool or hip. It's not edgy or flash. It's fucking fishing and basically boring unless it's you doing it. Kinda like watching golf with dumpier clothing. Stop trying to look cool because you are species xyz-Delta dry jig fly extreme only fish bro. Your tattoo is dumb. Your buff is played out. And your internet glory seeking only solidifies your massive lack of self worth disguised as hipster sheikh. You're not cool. You're just another nerd seeking affirmation because you couldn't get laid in school. Which is totally fine as we all didn't channel Tom Seleck at nineteen. But your internet fishing fame seeking is just sad. Stop it. And stop wrecking the vibe of places you supposedly "care so so deeply on a soul level like some form of primordial connection to the wild". Yes, it sounds just as stupid when you say it in print or on video. Oh and your articles, just stop. You can't write for shit and you're the only one who enjoys reading your own bullshit. They seriously suck and I'm being kind. You know who you are. We've all read the regurgitated bobber dogging and fresh new twist on skagit casting article like fifty times by twenty dudes. You're not doing anything new. You're a carbon copy of the dude that came before you with a flatter brim on your hat, nothing more.
what the hell are you talking about???

It was an ill fated attempt at humor...

I'm not on any other social media platforms other than a jeep forum...I've never seen a bigger group of whiners...

My last post...aloha.

yeah, they are a bunch of whiners....

kinda reminds me of a Jeep forum (don't worry, I used to have one and actually perused a couple of different forums from time to time)...I mean, golf forum....I mean, Crochet forum...oh, it's there. Bottom line, every single forum in the world of forums is whiney. Some just less so. Hell, if you want to see whiney, jump into a Prius forum.

This entire thread is actually pretty funny...at least now.

So has the video been completely poofed?

Yeah, total crap. On their page it just has the description still shot saying ,"thousands of fish here" and an arrow. Drone shot of course because that's the state of the art. I wanted to see a bold soundtrack, high fives, fat lower lippers of Kodiak, and the basic self congratulatory circle jerk that a fishing video of gear snagging pinks can only be. Deprived of that I lash out in anger.

These guys obviously screwed up and they know they did. I think regardless of what I think about fishing, I can't expect others to think the same. I can think they're idiots for acting like idiots, but all I can do is fish for my own pleasure. I'm sure idiots think acting that way is fun. Maybe some day they might mature but I'd be a fool myself to expect it to happen in my presence. Fishing is personal. Everyone's idea of it will not be like mine.

I was lucky in my past life of fisheries enforcement when my partner and I snuck up on two young would-be hotshots fishing a closed area for sockeye. As one filmed and provided the play by play of man vs. fish, the other went through various contortions like he was trying to pass a hard turd while standing. I'm pretty sure he passed it after he picked up a rock and was about to administer the coup de grâce on the fish that was flapping at his feet and we loudly identified ourselves.

Justice can be so sweet!
