Is Secrecy Dead?
I used to resent old crotchety fisherman for never sharing their secret fishing holes. As I've grown older and continue to work my way up to being a crotchety old fisherman I understand why they are this way. There are somethings and knowledge that should be obtained by exploring and developing relationships with people. The Internet is killing this way of discovery. All you need now is a computer, message board post, some GPS coordinates and you can find a spot that took others possibly a lifetime to discover. Perhaps the people who are having the best fishing days aren't the ones blogging or writing about how they caught 50 trout in a forum. Perhaps it's the people who keep track of their fishing adventures in their mind or share them with close friends.
