Did we talk about troll thread of year? 2 nominations....
1. Hans deep balls fly rod down rig thread
2. That dude that did the countdown nobody knew what he was counting down to and it was something weird like the days since the last articles forum was updated
Can't agree with you on that. I don't know either of them, but I think that Kerry and OMJ are crusty on the outside but great guys on the inside. I'd love to fish with either of them. They could win CODY (crusty old dude of the year).
Oh I'm sure Kerry is a great guy. I just think he plays the asshole better than anyone else here. Maybe I just bring out the best in him but his posting style is, at times sharp as a razor. Of course my comments are meant with all due respect. Very few have that skill.
Old Man, well he's just an Old Man. Hard to describe that guy but he's an original.
Yup, despite him being the first to jump all over FSA, within a month of joining WFF (steelhead policy differences, go figure), painting my PM inbox blue, and then adding me to his ignore list, I wish him well. That goes for everyone on the forum regardless of our differences.
When I had to leave my last job the president of the company came into my office to wish me well and to thank me for my work. Our conversation turned to my replacement which was the young technician I had hire a year or two earlier. He was concerned if he had enough experience to do the job. My response was that the young man was smarter than me, had more energy, and adapted to new technology better than I did. The area he needed to improve on was to not try to please everyone and to understand that sometimes his decisions were going to piss people off. John, the company's president said that it takes time and experience to know when to be an asshole and be able to smile about it.
Merry Christmas everyone and thanks for the well wishes and support.
Here I try to be low key and somebody brings me into this thread., I just can't win anymore. It's warmer today that yesterdays 17 degrees. It's 18 degrees today. And it's not supposed to get any warmer.. Just got to love staying inside on days like this.
