"I think when you hire a good guide you should be able to learn something from him that day. After all he should know the water better then you and the habits of the fish. If he doesn't you did not need him. I also think it is important to listen to the guide because of this. It does you little good to have hired a guide and then not follow his advice."

Being impatient at a kid because he can't handle an 8wt rod or the Dad because at that time I couldn't pick up 50-60ft. of line and with one backcast shoot it again is not advice......it's idiotic, and certainly not worth $400 for that kind of abuse.

Good luck with that kayak..lots of great water down there and certainly alot more peaceful than..."no no, not that way".. We still laugh about that jerk, although it wasn't funny at the time.
