Wink Re: Whats the deal with the Experience points?

Had to chuckle reading the who got an award on the top half of the link and then a few days later it appears to go away. How does someone 'give back' an award?


'The right hand giveth, the left hand taketh away' sort of thing?

Edit: Now this was interesting: http://www.theflyfishingforum.com/forums/xperience.php

Yes. Apparently I just had to "hand in" my reward in return for a different one. Cant just be piling on medals around here, things would get out of control.

Truer words have never been spoken. Its crazy, after just making reference to noreaster's we're going to get slammed with an actual Nor'easter. Could see as much as 75 centimeters (approx. 30 inches). On the bright side, the water table could use the extra precipitation for all the little troutskie's.
i am tired of the snow though. Ready for spring and tight lines.

I just tripped over this thread trying to figure out if "experience" and "activities" really mean anything. (Apparently not. I was so hoping a new rod or reel was somehow involved.) But lurking in this thread is a strong preference for Snickers as a fly fishing food of choice. Mine actually is Payday bars. No chocy mess. Lotsa "healthy" nuts. And when they turn up in a pack or vest a year or two after I buy them, they don't look so good but they taste fine. When I periodically buy a case from a c-store, I know the clerks must be wondering how I convert them to some sort of hallucinogen. (If I were good enough at forum mechanics I might try to start a different thread on fly fishing food with all of these posts tossed -- but, I have no idea how to to do that. So here it is for what it's worth (very little actually!).

Years ago, my hunting partner and I would always buy fun-size snickers for our kids to carry in their hunting day packs. We'd unwrap them and put 8-10 in zip bags for each kid so they weren't crinkling wrappers at inopportune times.
Occasionally, the bags of candy would show up the following (we think) year in a coat pocket, camp chair pocket, or day pack. They really do last a long time, though they may be one large nutty clump.

Or so I heard. If you're lucky you may run into the mischievous god of fly fishing Orvis watch out for his, magic reel. Its said that the sound of his reel singing can lull a fisherman into a trance. When they awake from it their fly boxes are usually empty. All legends i,ve heard anyway.
Well ... California, I had NO idea it was a 'Nude Beach!' 'Naked woooman's wading into the the Russian River. 'Can you teach me how to cast a fly rod?'

Took some serious thinking .. blank out, handed her the rod. Went and got another one out of the Jeep, 'Lord this is FUN!' Several of us fished together; Motor Home, headed for the Rouge River or the Chetco in Southern Oregon.

I was a 'straight arrow.' Kicked them out of bed at 0330 or 0400 and "LADIES GET YOUR XXXX out of bed's; breakfast time, we're off to the river."

Well, in my mid-late 60's,m do have one boy named after me. Melted my heart when I head about that.

His first birthday I sent him a fly rod with all the 'needs.' Later, hopefully.
