    Default Re: How many fish fourums do you visit?

    I visit this one and 2 local saltwater forums. This forum is kinda limited with the amout of saltwater fly guys, but the ones that are here are top notch. My trout fishing is very limited but i have been to western Md. and caught a few nice trout. I have received some great feedback from every question i have asked here. I think the mods and admin here are awesome and really go above and beyond to keep things running smoothly.
    I don't always fly fish but when I do I prefer salt water. Stay salty my freinds

    This is my home forum, I have (in the past) registered on two others but found the membership's less than accommodating and as Dan has said before me, rather political and perhaps a bit snooty. I have no use for 'snooty' and I have not ever logged on to them again.

    I joined this group in the spirit of curiosity and found people here that I am looking forward to meeting one day. The exchange of intellect and opinion on this forum is always polite and congenial and that is a rarity in these times. I look forward to visiting the site as part of my social life.

    I am registered on 3. This is my home forum and my most active, i read posts on the others, and have done 1 fly swap on one of them. I do post occasionally on a local forum, mostly because an aquaintance of mine frequents that one. It is mostly younger folks, and a lot of the "fishing" tends to be backwoods hiking, which I am getting too old to do. But it is local, so I check it out occasionally.

    As I said, this is my home forum, I like Ard, have no patience for the peyton place antics of some of the other forums. So, this is where I am, and hopefully I don't ruffle many feathers here or I am not sure what I would do with myself when I can't fish and am not at work.

    There was a guy who wrote article for fly magazines named William G. Tappley, who unfortunately passed away recently. He wrote an article a while back where a talked about a guy who asked him how to get started in fly fishing. Tappley replied "Are you sure you want to be a fly fisherman? We're horrible snobs you know." I thought it was funny. Unfortunately, it is also true in some cases. There is a forum where where the politics and snooty nonsense has kind of turned me off on it. There are a couple of amazing tyers on it, and I check their posts, but other than that they could shut down and not hurt my feelings at all. It may be the same site Ard is talking about. Sounds like it anyway.

    This is my main forum, as was mentioned in an earlier post; the people here are great. The other forums I visit once in awhile to mainly see what's going on in my area...

    JP,

    Having you here has been good for business, I understand the NAFF had to hire a moderator just to watch your naughty posting.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    I had a bunch of them I wasted my time on and and lately boiled it down to about five I regularly visit.
    This is one of the better ones for sure.
    It's too bad but two of the forums I was enjoyed visiting made some huge and terrible decisions... one which was a VERY good gear board was handed over to two non-fly fishers and it went downhill quick.
    The other, a once great southern board was bought by a guy who let ego get in the way of common sense and banned most anyone who he felt knew more than him, who was older than him or who didn't bow at the feet of czech nymping competitions in which HE could change the rules to better his position.
    Rant over... Merry Christmas and thanks for being here!

    I visit about four forums regularly. I check out fly tying forums mostly.
    As long as I get a bite, I don't want to leave!
