Have you seen any write-ups on the Arundell Arms on the Tamar in southern England? It'll make you salivate...

But BACK ON TOPIC , I'd like to see one of those British fellers use some GULP when no one else is looking!

I guess this is the time and place to admit it. I have worm guts on the handle of my fly rod. Can I still come to the fling?

Its a personal decision but for me its like taking a mulligan or moving a ball to a better lye in golf, you are using shortcuts to score instead of developing your talents.....to each his own

"Fly Fishing Is Not A Team Sport"----Tom McGuane

The fisherman now is one who defies society, who rips lips, who drains the pool, who takes no prisoners, who is not to be confused with the sissy with the creel and bamboo rod. Granted, he releases what he catches, but in some cases, he strips the quarry of its perilous soul before tossing it back in the water. What was once a trout – cold, hard, spotted and beautiful – becomes “number seven.”

Heh, heh, heh......

May not make it to the Fling. My wife's brother will be having knee replacement Mar 24, and it looks like we may be headed to Brunswick that week.....

(I might be able to sneak off a few afternoons for a little fishing)

We will see, we will see......

Talked to an Englishman about trout and hunting the other day. All I can say is I'm glad we have the public waters here that so many take for granted. Also, you can't bow hunt in the UK, which sucks because the way he described Scotland was awesome. He said, " if Americans think that some texans are gun crazy, they'd loose their mind in the highlands."

I have a ultralight spinning rod I can cast a flyline with, but that is not spin fishing either.
Very Well put and I agree, UncleJesse. And thank you all for the great responses.

Yes, worm guts are not illegal. Take Fishbreath's Seminar and you'll never have to buy worms again.

I like your avatar, is there a story behind it?
