Good Guide, Bad Guide
Peter Venlet from the Down for Repairs Blog writes about an experience he had using fishing guides on a recent fishing trip out west. He used two different guides on the trip and the first one spent all the time being critical of his casting ability and talking down to him. The second one was a great guy who gave them pointers and actually helped them catch fish. I have had similar experiences and really can't give much slack to a guide you are paying who treats you like he is doing you a favor. It makes you appreciate the great ones when you meet them.
Be sure to read the article and pay special attention to his comparison of fishing "out West" to the fly fishing we do here in the East.
