Thane has acomplished alot in tarpon fishing and is one of the best there is with a fly rod. He will have an amazing fishing career. Its easy to bash him here, especially as someone without a fishing career, friends , or obviously anything better to do with your life. Guess thats what living off of daddy will do to u.
A need to prove yourself cause you have fallen short of being anything on your own. Including a tournament angler as well as reaching Del Brown and Steve Huffs permit numbers. These failures in your career show attacking Dustin an easy target for someone who hasnt accomplished much impressive in his own fishing life.
To even bring Steves name into this convo is childish and ignorant. He is the best fly fishing guide to fish down here and his son Dustin has followed his footsteps and made his own path along the way.
Your a coward. You want to rip Thane apart meet him face to face like a man would. You wouldnt do it cause your a little boy. Hows life in Chicago? If your not a coward why not come down here during poon season, show up around Islamorada, Big Pine, and Key West and talk to some of those tarpon guides you have spoken so highly about.
And lets be clear about something. Yes, your name is on the Del Brown trophy. A big accomplishment. One you never would have done without a guide that put you on the fish. Other anglers who pioneered the flies you used and a slow year where one or 2 fish won it. So you really didnt accomplish anything on your own, as always. Then you were banned from all tourneys, not cause of your angling abilities but cause you are such an asshole, loser and jerk to be around. No tourney would let you in, no guide would fish you no matter how much you pay them, and just about everyone down here would love to knock you out. Again.
