Yep. Had this happen by a friend posting about a smallmouth creek I found “blue lining”, that I loved fishing and nobody knew about. Fortunately I had a few others in the back pocket but that’s where they’ll stay.


Is this not incredibly obvious?


Or do but don’t tell anyone where it is.


Kind of a catch-22 with restaurants, especially in expensive cities! I don’t want my favourite breakfast spot to have a 40 minute wait, but I also… want it to still be here a year from now
