On a more positive note, I just received the rods from newtyer1 that I had paid for back in mid january on the Fiberglass Flyrodders Forum. He ("smartin" on the FFR forum) was banned there and I did not realize that he was "newtyer1 on this and the FAOL boards until Mayfly aviator made the original post with his name here. So thanks to Mayfly aviator for helping me out in contacting Scott and completing my overdue transaction! Glad I was a member here or I might never have found him. So for me a happy ending, I am going fishing with my new rods!!
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.
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.
