Was wondering in everyone's experience if guides are more likely to show you more of their best spots and techniques if you are an out of towner for a one time fishing trip as opposed to somebody local who wants to learn to fish the river on their own. I am thinking about hiring a guide for the James so I can have better success on my own, but I don't want to be shortchanged either on what I'm taught for fear of giving away his secrets. I know of some guides who go so far as to ban GPS phones on trips. Is it a no-no to fish the same spots a guide has shown you, or is that a trade-off they make for taking your money for a trip? What do you all think?
