The difference between sentiment and being sentimental is the following: Sentiment is when a driver swerves out of the way to avoid hitting a rabbit on the road. Being sentimental is when the same driver, when swerving away from the rabbit, hits a pedestrian.

Good thread. Nothing worse than some douche gill-f---ing a fish and claiming C&R.
A Street Preacher asked me where I wanted to spend Eternity? I said "Fly Fishing." He smiled.

I put my point and shoot on a lanyard, comes down to about my waist. I stuff it under my waders and while I'm fighting the fish, I pull it out and turn it on and let it hang. Then when I get the fish in hand, I stuff the rod in my armpit and grab the camera with my loose hand, when I'm done and need to release the fish, I can just drop the camera and not worry about it til I can release the fish.
Don't like my peaches, don't shake my tree, stay outta my orchard, let my peaches be.
