    I would not recommend fly-fishing that close to a sidewalk…

    I take it that the larger the bait the larger the fish to be caught ?

    That’s not how you fly fish. It’s a gentle and subtle dance of air, line, and water.

    He’d better hope he’s in a live bait area.

    I was up to my waist in ocean water and playing fetch with my golden retriever when an idiot decided that tossing his fishing line in near us would be a great idea. He shot the line out into the water and started to reel it back in. The hook went in to my calf. I grabbed the line and started screaming in pain while the idiot just kept reeling it in because he thought he’d caught a big one. Someone finally stopped him. If I’d been bigger and male, I’d have planted a big one in his teeth. That hook HURT!

    Maybe if he just gets on his knees and puts the collar around his neck she won’t call the sheriff.

    “A Pomeranian runs through it”, such a great movie. Brad Pitt, or was it Brad Lab? Well one of them won a “Good boy, oh you are such a good boy!” for it.

    My take was it was a different twist on the old “Fly Fisherman Snags Trees” comic joke. Maybe I just read too many Field & Stream, Sports Afield, Outdoor Life, and DNR magazines as a kid.

    Another case of a bold attempt at humor falling far short of reality. Wiley will be hearing from the Organization of Easily Offended Fly Fishers.

    Well, this reminds me somewhat of 1950 when I won a fishing pole as 2nd place Soap Box Derby in Allentown PA. Had been at a Sumer Camp in East Waterford ME. Some counselors were very serious fishermen. I was in a row boat with a fellow who had a fly rod & very silent casting reel. I couldn’t cast further than 5 feet of the boat. So I loaded up my line next to lure with many lead weights. Didn’t put reel on silence, & made a mighty cast. Reel buzzed loudly. weighted lure landed about 20 feet from the boat with a loud splash making small waves. Probably scared fish to ends of the lake a mile or so away. Verbal expression of serious fly fisherman counselor was full of words I wasn’t allowed to say in polite company!

    That’s why I don’t fly fish anymore. Hearing that lure, whizzing past my ear at x mph, within factions of an inch, all I could think about was what my ear would look like ripped by that hook.
