hilariously pathetic

Who'd pay their guide to cheat? Perhaps you'd pay your guide for some weed, but other than that, this story on Bish on Fish regarding how some sports attempt to cheat the IGFA is really pretty funny in a I'm-such-a-fucking-loser-I-cheat-at fishing kinda way. Of course, this seems caused by some notion of "competition" in fly fishing, which is an equally stoopid notion.
Money Quote:
Many fly fishing guides will know occasions when their client confronted by a really big trout, say they have not got the skills to catch it, and ask the guide to have a go. If the guide lands the fish, the client is very keen to have a photo taken of him holding the fish. (Just a quick note, it is really not a good idea for the cheating client to stick the photo up on the internet, captioned as his 'kill'.)

Further proof that diseased tend to think alike, I just wrote a post about competition on the Trout Underground.

Mine was spawned by a bout with insomnia and "Fly Fishing Masters" on TV (as if the lack of sleep wasn't bad enough).
