Appropriate WFF report

#1
With everyone getting their panties in a bunch, here is a report that has taken the needed steps to not offend, but surely will ruffle someone's feathers.

I fished a beach in somewhere in Puget Sound sometime in the last week. The weather was cloudy. The tide was moving, but I won't specify what direction. I used a fly with some flash and feathers and a hook. The fly was dull colored. Some fish were caught, but I won't put up any pictures because I'm sure somebody would identify the fish and know where it was.

All in all, I will not express an opinion of the day because that may allude to the overall success and may further lead to assumptions on my location.

You just don't understand the implications of your actions do you? Thousands of lurkers on this forum and non lurkers and you make light of a serious attempt by the chickens in the rain group to help you understand the importance of not communicating specific information about sensitive fisheries. Don't you understand that fish should only be caught by people who have discovered, Lewis and Clark style, the fishery on their own. A post on a forum like this is forever and locals and regulars will now have to fish next to other people in their once secret areas. They need those fish to be completely unmolested by other fisherman, how else are they going to catch them. Besides we all know that the non flyfishing gear chuckers on the sight head out in the unscrupulous thousands to descend upon the helpless fish and fisherman so they can unethically harvest more than their keep. Don't you get how bad it is to be post specific results about any fishery. Peoples panties are bunched for a reason. From now on I suggest that all reports first must be passed by me for editing and for potential impact on a fishery. Please send me a PM.

I personally Keep a journal of my fishing trips that is kept in a lock box inside of another lock box in an undisclosed but safe location. As for giving a fishing report on a fishing forum that is just crazy and should be removed by the mods as soon as it pops up.

Lame thread, thanks for wasting my time.
Indeed, but I will say that what is not a waste of my time, is reading all of a thread that is a waste of my time and then taking the time to respond to the thread indicating how much a waste of my time it was to read the thread. Yes, that makes perfect sense to me, yes indeed.

Phister, I just received your report and I approve it, I'll send it out right now to the people who will appreciate it the most in terms of its ruffling effect.
