In this week’s video from Huge Fly Fisherman, Ben Sittig takes on one of the more controversial topics of the day: is the Internet good or bad for fly fishing? The answer, of course, is both. But when it comes to “hotspotting”–giving away information about specific fishing locations–he’s unequivocal.
Although there are some people who believe that you should never discuss any fishing locations, I’m sort of with Ben on this one. It’s impossible to “hotspot” a place that’s already famous–say, Three-Dollar Bridge or the Texas Hole–and there’s nothing wrong with discussing a whole river (unless it’s a secret) or a several-mile stretch of big water. What’s your take on this? When is it okay and not okay?
