People might think i’m paranoid about people watching me but I’m not

People might think i’m paranoid about people watching me but I’m not. I am just aware of people doing it for sinister reasons. After getting my 400mm lens a few years ago I started noticing fisherman watching me and then showing up where they saw me fishing. This might be from a boat or truck. It might be just a head sticking up over bushes, which has happened more than once, (starting back in the late 80’s when I tournament fished). But otherwise I could care less if they want to watch me catch fish, just don’t be sitting where you saw me so I can’t fish there the next day. Most guys do it so they have a story to tell about where they saw someone catching fish. Tournament guys do it to wheel and deal in information.

Then there’s the neighbors. I have caught window peekers. I do notice when someone aims their large security camera at my front door so they can see when I come and go. Then things start coming up missing or things start happening to my truck like flat tires, broken brake lines etc because I complained about them dumping hazardous waste in the empty lot next to my house. Or aiming floodlights and sensors at my front door just to be a nuisance because I complained about them dumping waste directly behind my house so the farmer would think it was me.
