Gil,
Whatever. Get a life man. I have lots and lots of friends in Tn simply because I've helped them catch more and bigger fish and tell them anything and everything I know, and if I don't know it, I try to refer them to someone who does. If you're not among them...wow...like my feelings are really hurt. you seem like a cool guy, and I'm sure you're not the jerk you appear on here, as I am not either, but dang...its just fishing man.

OH yeah...

He's never ruined any thread that I've read. I kind of enjoy watching all the panties get twisted when he posts.

I'm with you, I can't get enough of it. I don't have an issue w/ Tubbakka or the guys who hate him either one, it's just a riot to see them go back and forth, like driving by a wreck, you just have to slow down and look.

I never doubted that for a second. I've always been impressed with his catch, but that won't make up for being an extremely weak person. There are so many foks of great character that are phenomenal outdoorsman who are the exact opposite of Tubs.

They are humble, they not only respect others but also their quarry, and they don't put others down for choosing to do things a different way or for not being as adept.

Tubs' sole purpose for coming on this board is try to make himself feel better. Normally, that's just tragic, but he does it by putting others down, and I won't let him get away with it. Life's too short to allow the ignorant and arrogant to run over you.

Gil...dude...

...I've got SOOO many other outlets that affirm my character...and I'll be the first to say...talent and accomplishment DO NOT define character or justify one's self. I was both a state qualifying 400 meter dash runner and one of the best high school brass players in te state [1st chair honros orchestra] in the state in high school. I'm well aware of the fact hat NO ONE CARES NOW, and it wasn't relaly a big deal then, but even back then I laerned real quick that the onyl purpose for being good at something is helping people. Im' sorry that I disagree with you gil on so many points, and I'm sorry for coming across as an [censored], but when people starting whipping out knives I start whipping out guns. Maybe that's just my youth, but dang it, I've heard more ignorant jargon from fly propogandists that have yet to even latch hooks with a 20" brown, trying to tell others how and what to do wit hthem...a whole industry [fly fishing] is based on image and not results. The same with spoonplugging...trolling the same baits with 3 different colors doing the same thing in any body of water, applying HARD WORK, KNOWLEDGE, and driving 9.9 hp [Buck's recommended] tillers on 15 foot jon boats doesn't make money...but selling an image that you're only a REAL angler if you have a 20 foot triton with a 250 optimax on the back, and 6 different calcuttas rigged on 6 different fenwick's with 6 different magic colored plastic worms does...funny..the same seems to apply to flyfishing.

I've never said it didn't catch fish. If you have knowledge and skill, you can catch fish on ANYTHING...I'm just saying, specifically for browns, its way too much effort so little pay out...go get spinning and throw big baits, or better yet, go do the homework yourself and find out what all the records have been caught on...

...rainbows are a different story and I'll concede rainbows, big ones, are not best pursued on jerkbaits, but still...I think that they can be just as easily caught on spinning tackle employing worms or an indicatory drift than anything. I've never done this but talked to some who have, and to be honest...some of the largest rainbows are still caught on jerkbaits. More bang for their buck....but every 20" rainbow I've cut open has salad in his stomach and every 20" brown has sculpins. Period. Nuff said. Use that knowledge. I just get frustrated at upstarts who condescend and act like they know it all, and get lock jawed when the little redneck boy walks out with the biggest fish spending an inth of the money. I dealt wi hthat SHALLOW AND IGNORANT behavior when I first came out here. A few minority of the fly anglers out there are INCREDIBLY knowledgable...BD and Mike A. and others...but they learned other tactics as well...its sad when the novices get convinced by others, nay, BEGUILED into thinking they have to spend thousands of dollars on waders, DRIFT BOATS [[censored]!?!?!??! YOU cna't even go UP STREAM to hit another run...its a5000 BATH TUB~!!!], fly tying and junk to catch fish that are obviously more easily caught on an 18 dollar wal mart rod, spinning reel of your choice, and a various assormtment of small to lage jerkbaits and egg and worm imitations. SHALLOW AND IGNORANT??? That's what pisses me off...when marketing and stigma overrides facts and knowledge...use fly tackle if you want, I don't care. But don't try to sell the bag of goods that its the best way to go about the business. It's an expensive time consuming specialist way, and that's fine for some, but I've seen way too many out there that are cheated out of great days o nthe water trying to figure out just how to cast their equipment because theyt only can fish leisurely once a month or twice ona weekend...instead of trying to leanr how to cast, they could be catching fish. NUFF SAID.

I don't run over everyone gil. Just those that try to exploit those who don't know better. I was almost one of them. I used to think that the fly guides were the ones who knew how to catch the big trout. Turns out they were the charlatains. Its sad when someone's paid so many thousand dollars to catch a 16" fish and I paid a fraction of that to catch so many over 20". He could do it too...just as easily, and I wouldn't charge him for information, but someone swindled him into buying into a guise of knowledge and perception of competence. I get on here, share pics, respond to pms, and produce fish fairly well for the time I'm out there...and yet I've been slammed for even JOKING about "guiding" from guys who haven't had nearly the same resutls out there as I or shore, and charge monumental prices for catching 12-18" fish because IT'S ON FLY TACKLE. That's what pisses me off....that's no excuse.

This shows me just how little you know about guiding or at least being a fly-fishing guide and the fact that we are bound by what are clients' goals are for any given day. Putting first timers in scenario to catch bigger browns is not possible, and even if it was it is setting them up for failure.

Its all about reading people, and asking a few questions so we don't force our desires onto others and let them spend their money how they wish.
