Reading the local board this morning I was amused by the wonderkid that's been fly fishing for about 5 minutes that is now an expert, posting photos of perhaps the crappiest looking fly I've ever seen and going on to detail the hows and whys of the fly's "development", then posting an SBS of how to tie it even though nobody asked for it or even commented on his fly (this is all in a thread that another guy started about a fly he tied that was actually decent) the thought occurred to me that I really hope I wasn't that guy when I first started out.

I'll bet Mitch's shoe budget that the innerwebs wasn't around when you first started out.... :smile

The interweb was...but I don't recall there being many fishing chat rooms around.

not fishing, but the stupidity amazes me... every year there are deaths (very painful ones) here from shit like this.

Hello and Happy

Sunday!

A friend of mine just ate a random white mushroom. They THINK it was all white. There photo forthcoming. Suggestions?
They are in Bonsall, CA.

Your suggestions will not be deemed as medical advise and ultimately it will be up to them to choice treatment.

Thank you

in advance.

Typical question:


Hey guys,

I'm planning on doing a little bikepacking weekend this summer via XXX from XXX down into the XXX. While I will be camping out and then hitting single track in the area, I'll also bring along my rod and reel to toss a few flies.

Now, I've never fished in this area and I'm not looking for GPS coordinates to your honey holes, just shoot off some areas in a very general sense of where to be. I like finding my own way and discovering spots on my own, but I just need to be pointed in the correct general direction... I.E - in town, north of town, south of town, etc.

Thanks in advance


But the first response is fucking awesome:


Pro tip: fish live in the river. I'd fish there.

I'm not too worried about giving out directions to the honey holes, the local flyshops will take take of that. If it is the weekend, just put your nose in the air and follow the scent of smug. Once you find the high dollar SUVs, flyshop receipts and bottled water blowing through the parking lot...you are close. Looks for the lawyers and accountants taking themselves way too seriously outfitted in the latest and greatest from Simms and your there.

Seriously, did you even look at a map? We've got one river flowing down the middle of the valley. Care to hazard a guess as to its name?
