Default Fun Fact

I wasn't fishing last night, but I thought I would pass along a little tip when it comes to fly fishing.

Never cut your fingernails before a trip. I've had many trips ruined because there's usually that one fingernail that you happen to cut too short. Mine's usually my thumbnail. You wouldn't think it matters, but it can make a trip fairly unpleasant after a few hours. Just thought I'd pass this along since I had an oops last night. Thankfully, I'm nowhere close to being on the water. Stupid ice....

Don't spit into the wind. Is this how this thread is supposed to go? I'm Confused....

Also, drive the speed limit and pass on the left.

nothing to do with fly fishing, but..................

Never scratch an itch on your "private parts" after trimming your fingernails short if you were chopping up habanero peppers earlier in the day.
