    I think it IS all the neat oddities and differences that make it fun. Probably no real hard feelings about the comments on here.

    The tweeter generation. It's infected us all. Too busy or lazy. SHORTCUTS, the NEW American way! Damn youth. But still, so glad they aren't listening to BOSTON or JOURNEY like some of us (not really my music, saving myself ridicule cause some might not be kind :)
    Besides, those lazy X-box, cereal eating kids won't crowd the rivers or hiking trails so I say more internet and pseudo world for the masses.

    Variety is good. Different ways are good. Funky is good. Sort of like when someone you like says something really off, you can chastise them or shrug your shoulders and laugh.

    Always better to laugh with someone than at someone. I know. Because I've been there. It hurts : )
    Those doofy looking kids with pants falling down, texting and hip-hopping are no worse than my mullet hair days of the 80's.


    Group laugh and hug (not you Zen, still leery of you: )

    Are gonna be the ones who take up fly fishing one day and it's our duty to make sure they've got the opportunity, regardless.

    "SRC? WTF!?!"

    Wait, and you were to lazy to type out WTF in full?!

    Just kidding (notice I spared you the "j/k")

    Not kidding about this: spend your time showing respect for the resource, not worrying about language, and we'll all be all right.

    Yep, most are probably good kids too! They'll be fat and bald in time too with any luck- like most of us, and pass on the flyfishing gene to
    hopefully many generations.

    Everyone. Really. Wow.

    Go back and read the original post and de-wad your panties! The original intent was only semi-serious; hence the use of terms like "I know this seems dumb" and "I'm not quite sure why" and "I've lost my mind" and "this may win the dumbest thread ever award" (which it may well do, thanks to y'all!). No one is telling you what to do, what to say, how to act, or how to speak. Jeeez! Just letting of a little steam about a personal pet peeve regarding language and throwing it out there, on a spontaneous whim. Again, wow.

    Who cares what you call them? Stick to what's important, who's got the hot fly. If you're looking for respect you're too needy. Buck up and ask yourself why you've got nickname for anything. I call my wife a hot Cutty. Best thing I've ever hooked.

    Relax Freestone, it's not worth steaming the ears. There's no serious flaming in this thread so my parable might have been more appropriate in another. Timing is not my long suit. (Not sure I have a long suit.)

    I normally don’t get wrapped up in these types of discussions but because I have been a long time advocate of the Coastal Cutthroat Trout I am on the same fence with Preston and Les J. and others. As with our wild steelhead these fish deserve more respect than being referred to as SRC, Rezzie, Cuttie when I see or hear these its like finger nails on a chalkboard.

    I agree it kills me to read and feel obligated to type rezzie when I post on here about resident silvers. Just because most folks on here refer to them as rezzies does not mean that I needed to do the same just to fit in though. I think I will stick to my favorite name for them which is what my father has always called them and that is resident silvers. Some might prefer resident coho, resident silver or even rezzie to each their own.
