Default just needing to vent

Normally, I'm not one to complain about things. But in this case, I need to. I am a former member of Fish Erie forums. I gotta say, the site has gone down hill. I.E. I put an item up for trade in exchange of some sucker spawn. I get a pm from a pro member that stated, "I got your sucker spawn". SO i replied, you're interested in the reel. Waiting days, I got no reponse back. In review of it all, I took this as a smart alek pm. It's fine if you are friends, but a complete stranger to do as such is unacceptable. I am glad to be part of this site. I have yet to see much unprofessional here. Thanks for listening. Mike

Yeah, good guys here, huh. I sure enjoy being around this group, and hearing what they have to say.
Consider the source on the other.

Mike,

You have found your on line fly fishing hangout. This is a good place filled with mature anglers who have a deep affection for fly fishing and a healthy respect for our fellow members. As you know some of us are more active than others at posting but we have a huge range of members who post. By range I mean men, women, young people (teens) and a growing international group. Think about it, France, Serbia, Norway, Uruguay, New Zealand, Newfoundland, And many other Provence's of Canada, Spain, The UK., and Ireland, this is an incredible assortment of people who log on and share the sport and the craft.

I know I missed someones' country but I just wanted to say that I am happy to be a member here and I am looking for a lot more growth in this group.

Ard

The more I look at other forums the more I don't bother looking at other forums.

For something like that I would just drop the forum and never go back. It's their loss.

Mike, it seems to be more politically and socially correct now, to be rude.
I believe in ressiting the norm, especially this one.
Folks here can leave helpful tips and "loosely stated" water reports, FF styles, photos etc.
With very little ego or spleen.
Don't know how it works, just that it does.
Must be those fishy admin guys.
And a body of nice people who needed a place to hang.

Jim

Right you are Ard, right you are. And if you click on the F&F websites you'll find out just how far afield this family of Fora really extends.
