That man is me.
Wait..don't email this thread to FBI or something hear me out, I am about to teach you city folks a lesson.
I like fishing and the kind of fishing I like is where no one will bother me. NO ONE.
When I come to a spot other people visit, I find cans of beer, garbage, cigarettes, plastic bags, honest to God I would jail those of you who throw garbage in pristine environment. It shows complete intellectual immaturity to throw garbage in such a place.
Long story short I go through great lengths to find strictly my own spot, I go way out of bounds, hiking for hours. So when I am about to go "off road" I make sure no one can see me entering the brush, and likewise that no one can see me returning to the trail. Since I go through great length to be away from other Anglers, I don't want to give people ideas where they too can go.
When I am returning to trails, this is the funniest and creepiest thing, I see half the time people walking on trails, often with their dogs. All I do is remain motionless by a tree, not even moving my head, only my eyes.
People are OBLIVIOUS
You'd think a single dog would "feel me", spot me, smell me..nope, not a single one, even those who run through the brush all the time. I guess these city dogs are not really dogs but toys/pets.
Here is the lesson that I realized myself.
You are always being watched, bears, cougars, crazy woods people, guys who protect their fishing spot, wolves, bigfoot, hunters, trappers.
For all I know, when I am watching people on trails, something or someone is watching me watching them.
Creepy, but I believe it.
