How many feel we are getting way to?

Technical in our sporting equipment?
Reels with computer chips to control back lashes, side view sonar, etc.
Rifle scopes with range finding abilities and being able to show you the drop of the bullet.
Come on I might be 60 but still consider hunting and fishing a sport.
With all the tech stuff showing up on the market pretty soon your reel will do everything, what fun is that going to be?
Granted both my boats have GPS/Fish Finders and most of my reels are not cheap. But if this keeps up where will the fun and the sport of chase be left.
Our waters and lands are being pressure way to much as it is.
Be well my friends
Very Good Answers so far, nice to see their are some sporting people left.
Gimman part of what you stated is why I quite fishing T’s and the political aspect that started emerging. It no longer was fun and/or relaxing.

I’m getting my boyfriend a carrot stick (it’s a type of expensive fishing rod) for our one year anniversary?

Im totally in love with this guy and I want to make sure he knows it. I have given him Costa Del Mar sunglasses for graduation, and a bunch of cloths, hats, and a charm for his chain for other presents. Do you think a nice fishing rod and reel would be a good idea? I was going to get him Gator Football tickets but I’m not sure if i can get them anymore. Any ideas?

Is there much chance of getting a guide to lower $?

I am taking a trip to Savannah GA and want to go inshore fishing(cheap on gas) so all money will be guides. I am willing to go on a Monday, so as not to eat into his weekend, I don’t need help fishing–just want some pointers and some good fishing places. The price is for up to 3 people and I am alone.
With the economy, I was hoping he would be willing to take less to get a client. I don’t expect to go for free. It is $325 for 4 hrs…I was thinking 200 – 225? What do y’all think?
That is $50 an hour cash in his hand vs nothing on a Monday possibly
Alex, if it were a bigger boat , I would not expect it to be cheaper, (INSHORE) maybe a 21 ft whaler style boat–hell ,we can take my boat if he will tell me where to fish.
And Alex…a 20% tip is more proper
