Happy June!

I'm completely new to this forum. Josh at Gates Lodge (Grayling MI) recommended I try here for help to a personal crisis.

I've been a one rod man my whole life, being the proud owner a a humble 7'9 5 wt. Orvis Green Mountain. I received it for my 12th birthday in '93. This past Saturday evening I lost the top section while floating in a tandem kayak. We went into some brush, you know the rest.

Wondering if anybody out there has a green mountain of this vintage that they are willing to sell? Or better yet, anybody happen to have a broken butt section and a good top?? That part ultimately doesn't matter, but it'd make for a feel good ending.

Much thanks to all!

Mornin' fellas... (Where it is still mornin'...)

I haven't checked in here for... what? a year? Two years? Whatever, I know none of you fuckstains missed me anyway. But I had to share that I woke up to an email from Jeff, who posted here about his missing rod part: "Please delete my one and only post here... God, I was just looking for help with a problem. What a community..."

I shared with him in my own way that: A) This isn't a "community" it's a cell block. And B) This wouldn't be my first destination of choice if I was looking to solve a problem. If I was looking to GAIN a problem? Definitely. Come here for that.

Hope you all are doing shitty. Do any of you even read the magazine anymore? You DO know there's a magazine, right? I miss the golden days of this place, but I 'preciate you all keeping The Suck afloat. If nothing else, it gives all the podcasters a question to ask me that they never ask anyone else. Mitch, you definitely deserve some dickhead hall of fame trophy, for your longevity if nothing else. (IS there a Dickhead Hall of Fame? There should be. Who'd be in it? Now that's a great campfire-debate starter.)

FYI: We're actually launching a new Drake website here in the near future ("near future" at The Drake always being a relative term, of course), probably later this month. But never fear: This pisshole will remain the same worthless time-and-soul-sucking shitbox it's always been. This place is so old now that it'll probably become cool again, like, to hipsters or something, sorta like vinyl and record players.

Fuck off, all ya'll!!

Tom

Jeff was being serious about the missing rod?

If I ever get interviewed on a podcast, I'll probably casually work it into all conversations.

"You were on a podcast? How cool...."

"I'm sorry, did I say 'podcast'? I meant 'podcasts'."

You should rename it the Tom Bie Journal since you seem to write most of the stuff in it. After my subscription ran out I never renewed it. Like this web site, it just got kind of stale.

Have I missed some really fresh stories about Clyde? :coffee
