Another post kind of reminded me of this. How do you explain to someone the eitiquet involved when you take them fishing? I fish alone about 90% of the time simply because I have been burned so many times by taking a buddy along, only to find him there fishing a few days later, with someone else! Then that guy comes back with another buddy, and so on and so on...kind of like that old commercial on TV...and they tell two friends and they tell two friends. How do you approach this when you take a buddy fishing somewhere that you want to keep pressure off of, besides simply not taking them? Most are on private land, but the problem is my buddies can get permission to pretty much any place I have permission, since we all grew up together. Really ticks me off! At the same time, it is nice to fish with somebody to help pass the time between bites. Any suggestions?
