Would someone be willing to list out all of the acronyms on the sight (i.e. NFR, SRC etc.) for those of us still trying to figure them out on our own? Still getting used to this website's language...Thanks for the trouble!
There are definitely some terms that seem to be specific to the Northwest. The fish have multiple names
Silvers = hook-nose = Coho Salmon
King = Black Mouth = Chinook Salmon
Red Salmon = Sockeye
Dog Salmon = Chum Salmon
SRC = Harvest Trout = Sea-run Cutthroat
Freshet = rain or showers
winter brat = square-tail = Steel = Steelhead
Stilly = Stillaguamish
Skok = Skokomish
Sky = Skykomish
OP = Olypic Peninsula
Chris = The Boss
In terms of sexing fish, although its obvious, people refer to the male as a "buck" and the female as a "doe" or "hen".
Then, as previously mentioned, there are the tons of acronyms people use with their everday language. One I learned this past year was IMHO - "in my honest opinion"
or also abbreviated to "IMO" in my opinion.
I had this same problem a few years ago and I went to www.magicpub.com/netprimer/acronyms.html. It made every thing clear. But not all that is said here is in there. Like IMHO is as stated "In my humble opinion"
A couple months ago I became a member of a group called the "ROMEOs", as in Retired Old Men Eating Out. We meet once a month at a pancake house. Back when I had to work I had Friday and Saturday for days off so my favorite acronym in those days was Sure Happy It's Thursday.
This entire business is more fun when a person doesn't have to work anymore, no more SHIT.
