john has a great show...
I notice many fishing rods and gear lying between their feet and all around them during the shows. If it were me, I would be stepping on those rods and breaking them, knocking them into the water, and generally tripping over all that gear, especially if standing on a windy day.
You are talking for your buddy, I get it.
I also get that you have posted multiple times about your displeasure for Dale fishing out of the front of the boat and even made shots at him by calling him names.
You seem to have an axe to grind.
I think you should simply let it go. We've all read the statements. And remember, he isn't guiding those guys, he's filming a show. Big difference. From what I've been told by people who have been on the Gillespie show, guests know how the process works.
I've never hired Dale, but in the Gillespie show, he isn't guiding a client. He's filming a show with John. I could care less where he stands or casts. And I say that about anyone he is fishing with. I think Manthei prefers fishing out of the back of the boat, but doesn't Matt B take the front? He's a guide too, but I never see anyone calling him out for that practice.
Dale may very well have been a little testy with some people on the spot that he wanted his customers to fish. Customers could have been turned off.
In my experiences with him, though, he's treated me with respect up there. Can't ask for much more than that. Other guides I've run into up there? Well, they've not acted the same way.
