I'm going to need to change my name on here...
What are the odds...?!!
Your departure is our loss but I stand by how things have been handled.
Mid January?! You are one lucky dude. Membership has its privileges!
NOt fair, it is just not fair! Soooo what shall we call you?
Fontinalis, I know you are in Philly and harder conversations are had over the best tastycake and who makes the best cheese steaks in town. Lived in West Philly coaching at PENN, and grew up about 30 miles away, it's a small City close the to the heart. A lot of us would appreciate your reconsideration...Also, you have not let us know how the remainder of your degree has worked out.
In keeping with the positive spin, Jerry, bugs are in the box and will be mailed out this week. I'm not as gifted as others, but the bugs I sent you catch fish, not fishermen!
Contact info was sent to the local PHWFF coordinator nearest to my home this evening. Its time to step up fellas, be the difference.
I dedicate this to whomever Scott Martin is. Listen to the entire song Scott Martin, then look in the mirror:
Keeping it positive, some of you wanted to know what you can do to help our wounded soldiers.
I donated this box of flies to PHW for wounded marines at Fort Belvior and the Quantico Marine Base.
My friend, Bob Gartner, runs the program at Fort Belvior and they share flies with the Quantico PHW programs. You can find them on

Other BBs have said that Scott Martin claimed to be an Orvis Pro and
got Orvis equipment at discount. I wrote Tom Rosenbauer. Tom emailed me back that Orvis is aware of Scott Martin.
He has been selling "new" Orvis equipment on SEFF
Has the SE flyfishing forum been notified about Martin? I don't see any posts about it.
Yes, I notified the list owner. I don't think he has pulled his stunts on SEFF so I don't know what will happen. It is up to him to deal with it.
Although he may have served his actions might interest the Stolen Valor project
Although he really only deals with fake Navy SEALs I'd like to see what Don Shipley would do with this guy.
I am also donating a ton of flies to PHW as well. Our sport has been tarnished by this guy. I think we should all do something to bring the dignity back into it. Donate something to PHW.
Stolen Valor has already been notified.
There was a guy down in Colorado Springs, Colorado who successfully pulled off a scam like this. He was able to convince a bunch of soldiers at Fort Carson he was the real deal. He eventually got caught but was not prosecuted and is back at it again.
I applaud all you guys who have not allowed this one bad apple, Martin, to tarnish Wounded Warriors and PHW.
