I've never put a rod in my mouth....not that theres anything wrong with tthat!
Ok, now I think we should have a "rod in mouth only" competition. You go first!

Darn! Does looking where the fish was count?
IMHO, there are only a few things more dull and unimaginative than yet another posed picture of a fisherman holding a fish. The hero shot. The story has ended before the shutter has clicked. Its all over, nothing to see here, move along. In WW's photo the action continues. We are drawn into the ongoing experience. Much better.
Plus it allows the fisherman to increase the size of the fish. Just like a good catcher sells the pitch by instantly moving his glove back into the strike zone. At the instant of release the fisherman expands the distance between his hands. Even the most eagle eyed umpire can sometimes be influenced.
Can't believe I even clicked on this f*ckin' thread.....
In some cases it's first catch a fish.
I'm no cork biter, but I'd say my fly rods are the only ones safe to bite, if I felt so inclined.
All my gear rod handles are encrusted with dried roe, herring or anchovy slime, dried scent, and fish blood, with a few scales here and there to add some sparkle. I should probably just tie a hook on a short leader attached to those handles, and see if I can get a fish to bite 'em.
Maybe these companies don't want people sending those pictures because those pictures are boring, cliche, and unimaginative. There are a lot more interesting ways to pose for a picture of a fish.
And this whole idea that it's elitist fly snobs who have a problem with it is laughable. There's nothing elitist about getting tired of seeing the same cork biting picture over and over again, which is probably what these companies have to deal with in these contests.
For the love of god, go fishing!
What...no lip to lip pose??
"Feelin' a bit bloody today...ain't he..."
My goal is to get a picture of me holding a fish with my sage Method in my teeth wearing a flat brimmed hat, and a puffy jacket ASAP! A lot of people would be pissed! Thanks for the laugh guys!
Y'all can go soak some cork in saliva..... Not quite my style.
From now on for all my pics I'm going to hold my rod out for the camera and hold the fish in my teeth
I'm going to get some Simms emblems to adorn my catch. And possibly put the rod in the fish's mouth? Notice I didn't say my rod... That would have to be a huuuuge fish
I for one will never hold a rod's cork handle between my teeth . . . that would flip my dentures out . . .
