Weird Things on the River

#31
You did a nice job and your points are very sound. Then instead of adding a story or antecdote, your threw your little punk assed aside in. Couldn't help yourself could you? How about we continue our merry discussion and you go try to hijack someone else's thread and turn it into the tedious, draining pissing contest that some of these threads become. We're flyfishermen talking about weird things or funny things we've seen on the river. Maybe you missed the title. Come join us. There's room in the drift boat for everyone. If you want to stir old ashes, we'll let you float through and take another run. You can mentally and verbally joust with yourself all the way down. We're just trying to get a good chuckle and lighten things up around here. Tight lines Coach

Now how about some more weird shit on the river boys!

ncitrez nice post. So now we have reports of not beavers or otters being hooked, but Bigfoot! Ahhhh now that is priceless. Looks like some of the boys need to go in on a 14 weight and hit the beginners hole between 10 AM and 4 PM or whatever. Has anybody called Orzel on this? He might have beached it and released it and never told anybody. Old man Pritchard is smiling from ear to ear somewhere, tying Kalama Dynamites. Nice post. Coach :D

Hey Coach, Matt,

Those are some great stories. The two of them together remind me of that Tom Waits song "Big Joe and Phantom 309" Only with Cops, strippers, elk, ex-Marines, nurses, neurological examinations, a flipped Crown Vic, and guns.

Keep it up.

windtickler, you missed my point that Gris was talking down to us and acting holier than thou. I refuse to answer your aside comment. Cheers

One time I was looking at Washingtonflyfishing.com and thought I saw a gizzley bear but it was really just a tool well past his prime. That was nutz.

I dont know wha the hell that is, could just be a bear standing up, kinda has a face like a bear.
Actually, if you care to look a little closer, it has a face that looks like a tree stump that has been hit by lighting. :rolleyes:

So the Yak routinely gives up weird stuff on the river. We have seen college kids having sex on the bank, rescuing floaters that have capsized their inflatable rafts, can't swim, and are almost too heavy to lift onto the drift boat. Yes, this one gal almost didn't make it, luckily my brother-in-law is stronger than an ox.

My fav on the Yak which brings this thread full circle was a guy screaming out as he drove by on the Canyon road: "fly-fishing is for pu...ies!!".

I thought Gris's post was because the board has lately gone from "family-oriented" to much more adult in terms of language, pictures, and themes. That usually seems to the be (d)evolution of male-dominated boards.


Maybe we need an Adult Content (AC) acronym, like the NFR arcronym (although AC is arguably NFR). That way we don't have to argue over the 1st admendment, worry about getting over moderated, or offend people unecessarily.
Windtickler really got what I was after. Think about it.

Lex, Coachduff, you may be fly fishermen, but you are no gentlemen. Your actions and choice of verbage speak for themselves. Attack me all you want, but really do you speak in front of your Mothers, wives, children or business people like that? It is unnecessary and unbelievable. The trash talking degrades the forum and our sport. Before you run off that this is a big boy forum ad nauseam, remember that there are other fly fishermen, women, and younger kids that read this forum daily.

Best of luck to you.

let's not have any false modesty here.

when i was a kid, i completely absorbed the language of my elders, whether it was somewhat profane or somewhat profound.

equally, my sister.

this is how we learn.

and my mother, now 86 years old, uses language when tending her garden that would make a muleskinner salute.

"gentlemen", my ass. i note that you did not include "gentlewomen".

i'm not going to put up with the "purification" of flyfishing. period.

Sheesh.

I'm not missing the irony that I applauded when the moderators all decaffienated a bit, but before sending it I do generally think if a post is going to kid or female friendly. (Otherwise, I offend freely ;-))

As an aside, how do you get a masters in microbiology or whatever without learning to write?
