    Wait,  there's food threads on here too?  
    Ok, who flagged that?  Sneaky,  you must have done it while I was reading the 'what you buying'  or  'what you are drinking'  or ' what are you doing v1 and v2' threads.

    Hang in there, I didn’t understand this forum when I was a noob either.  It took some time but then I realized how it reminds me of the locker room before a big fencing meet.  Lots of hijinx and everyone is talking about so many different things and taking swipes at each other but it’s just the anxiety.  Everyone really loves each other.

    I’m afraid that’s all I can do it mention it in passing.  I worked off some detention at a gym in school, I didn’t fence or learn anything about it.  Truth be told I was pretty intimidated because it was all rich kids, but not the cool rich kids, they all played lacross, it was kind of the awkward ones.

    One of my other interests is fly fishing. 
    @DainW you like fishing for flies?  Leave a crawfish under a drivers car seat but leave the window open - you should be able to catch a bunch of flies all at once.   (Inside joke - don’t ask.) 

    People around here seem to really love stories just as much as cooks. Want proof? Look at the what are you doing/buying now threads. Tie them together and you might have a masterpiece. Or you can have fun and take it in another direction like the tree rats and fancy wine thread.  

    You like fly fishing? Post some pics and stories, and finish with the cook.

    No idea where you are, but you are not alone in the love of fly fishing. Whether a tiny native brook trout in a small mountain stream, a grayling in high altitude lake, or a yellowfin tuna - I will throw a fly at it if I can.  Here is my first yellowfin on a fly back in the mid 90’s  True offshore fly fishing was pretty much in its infancy then. Post a picture fly fishing and I know you will get a “like” from me   


    is that a 13 wt rplx, if it is i had one modified with an extended butt section back then, was hoping for a mako. did catch a few bullshark with it and almost got a fly into the mouth of a 20 somethin foot baskin. thought i was going to lose the transom and motor when it rubbed its back on the little 20 foot boat i run

    Excellent eye @fishlessman.  I still use the rod. 14-15 wt. I never got a mako on the fly but I  can’t tell you how many blue sharks I have on it. Fun to catch them when they scare off the meat fish during a chunking trip.  This rod, although considered ancient and possibly an antique, is a workhorse.  It is also the only fly rod I have with a gimble which as you know is a groin saver.

    couldnt imagine casting a 15, it takes all my effort with the 13. there seems to always be bluesharks out there, used to just go for the sharks. occasionally hook a giant bluefin but my gear was way undersized

    My favorite rod that I have is a 7’6” 2 wt that I built. Such a pleasure to cast.  The stalking of a fish in a mountain steam with double haul to a rising trout is as exciting as any large offshore fish I have fought, if not more so. 

    As for the 14wt @fishlessman -  I really do not cast it much. A small roll cast is about as much as a cast as I can do on an offshore boat. With the outriggers, always present wind, and others wanting to have a line in, there is no room.  I have a quick sink shooting head, intermediate running line and a crap ton of backing.  If chunking, I let the fly drift out with the chunks. Once I think I have the right depth, I strip retrieve as I am usually using a squid pattern. Strip it in 15-20 ft then twitch as I left it drift out.  That is the “cast”. 
     
    If we are trolling and we are with footballs (small tuna) or around some Mahi, I will troll with the rod and the drag is up high. Can’t “set” a hook on the troll while holding the line  unless you want to rush degloving a finger. No thank you.   I am not going all IFGA regs to catch the fish. I am not trying to set any records.

    Exactly this. A brookie on an appropriately sized fly rod in a remote stream is as fun to catch as anything. 


    As far as forks I can’t even remember who it was that has the visceral reaction against seeing a dirty fork. But I understand.
