Much truth to the above. In many ways this Fora is like a British 'Pub.' We talk, we exchange experiences, observations that 'might work for you' - or not.

But the bio info gives me a perspective as does the location info. A question asked, knowing the posters location has kept my fingers off the key board on many occasions. Nothing I could add that would contribute a wit's worth.
Hey Fred,

Turns out " It’s not the year, it’s the mileage."

I looked at Ard’s and his whole bio is up and he’s no spring chicken…..

TT

Hi Milt,

There must be a maximum word count for bio text. It stopped mid-sentence about half way into the bio. So I took down the half that was accepted. It’s kind of like inviting people over for dinner and then bringing out a half eaten cake for dessert.
Not all that appealing….and it doesn't exactly say.

No bigee, I'll whittle it down when time allows.

Thanks for the reminder Ard. I did a biography and updated my location.

OK...after passing this by a bit...out of respect for the excellent moderation going on here I will make a few brief remarks...

thanks for the moderation...many other forums are lax in this...and I appreciate the fact that you and Larry take your jobs seriously...of course I guess that goes with the huge salaries...LOL...

this forum for sure has its own personality...there is for some reason a time delay with responses...not a software or server issue...more like viewers here take there time a bit more...which is quite fine.

one thing I really like is that folks here are friendly...and the folks that are a bit rough are asked to leave...

I'm probably very similar to many here...just trying to find a friendly place to exchange ideas and stories..

5th gen Coloradan...been fly fishing since early '70s ...fished in Colorado,Wyoming,SD out west and New York, Pa,MD,Va,Wv & NC in the east...first rod a Wright McGill...I tie quite a bit and make custom bamboo fly rods and nets...

pretty simple...thanks again for watching over all this...ted...

and yes I do like the remark that there is a spectacular aura about me....LOL... at least thats what those two little green blocks up in the corner say??...

Great thread. I've always been a strong proponent that you use your real name/location on these types of boards. I get to talk to you/you get to talk to me as a real person, perhaps no face unless you post up a fishing photo, but never the less a real person living in a real place.

I've made this same observation on two other major Internet boards and Dear God am I getting a pound of shxt delivered back.

Lost my 'cool' several days back when 'person' was asking for financial advise. PM'ed back "I have no idea in the world who you are, so why should I tell you how to make money?"

To my surprise, and delight I think, photos of wife, kiddlies, dog and places he fishes in the UK. Need more info to work out a financial plan. To put this in perspective, put aside 5 - 10 percent of your take home pay (yes, you may have to skip trips to the Pub) but when you most need same, it will be there.

Don't worry about the value going up/down .. stock/bonds are still tossing off cash. But I ramble again, but just a personal observation, I'm damned good at this and never charge a penny.

Mileage is definitely a factor buddy. I just came home from a week of exploring and working at the cabin when I wasn't river running, it took a full 24 to recover. The only reason I would wish to be 35 again would be that I had a lot more juice then and healed up quicker after getting banged about.

I actually filled out the 'About Me' part of the profile when I joined. I took the user name because I didn't understand that this would be such a long term thing for me. I thought that if you used your real name it would bring all sorts of problems privacy wise. Some day I'll change my screen to my real name I guess.

I whole heartedly agree.......it's about the mileage.....I have a major university in my area, so that puts alot of rookies on the stream.....I always take time to share the wisdom of a "greybeard", and I hope my efforts pay it forward in to "our" future as trout enthusiasts........at my age, it's not about the fish counts anymore.....it's about the future........tight lines.....

I just noticed this thread and it inspired me to write a more detailed bio for my own profile.
