I think a good and classy TR says much more about a guy than any amount of googled tits, pie, ginger (though, I do love the ginger) and a shot of his watch.
I'd like to suggest, however, that we hold newbies to the same high standards that we currently do (insert laugh track - here)... but for real content and not the fluff.
Having said this... it makes me a little sad.
I'm not good with change.
I mean... what about the DSFK?
Basically, I'll do what I do now... look into the newbies soul and decide if he's worthy.
All of this.
As far as the DSFK is concerned, it's a tradition that has basically come and gone. Before anybody gets too righteous with me, let me state that I have DSFK bumper stickers (yeah, I know, pretty special huh?!?) and I've met Kyner, fished with him, and shared a campfire. Hell, I even donated a guided trip to his TU chapter the summer before last.
Why the resume'? To make this point: Kyner doesn't even come to this forum anymore (or, if he does, he only lurks.) I don't think we're going to chafe anybody's butt if we don't pay homage anymore. Besides, if we can google tits and pie, we can certainly look on the shoulder of the road if we want to see dead shit, Kyner or no.
Quality TR's, and the hope to someday fish with the quality people who post them, are what this place is about.
