Hello everybody, I am Jimmy from Canada and I want to tell you something about the health. We have to give special attention to our health because health is complete wealth. Please keep away from the diseases like fat, blood pressure, hepatitis 'b' etc.

Hi Jimmy,

I moved your post over to The Lodge Den as it is not about fly fishing. Did you join to discuss fly fishing or to give your message?

To all,

Jimmy does present a good topic that will affect our fly fishing futures. I know we have a few fly fishers that are over weight or headed in that direction. After 50 I had to watch my diet and exercise. It has been hard, very hard, to keep my weight under control. I am still in good enough shape to back pack at 74. I would love to take my son on a back pack trip into the high Sierra's and introduce him to some heavenly spots that are breath taking. Unfortunately he is way over weight and can't get the mail without huffing and puffing. He likes to fish but it has to be trolling from a boat with lots of beer and cigarettes. I worry all the time that I will out live my son.

I don't know how many more years I will be able to wade a stream but keeping in good physical shape will surly extend that time. The older I get the harder it is to control my diet and exercise. So I hope some of you who might be on the wrong health trail, will take steps to improve your situation. Good health will definitely impact your years of fly fishing. Your family and friends will appreciate your efforts.

Re: Health
Some months back a woman from this same group posted a similar message on a hiking board I belong to.
I think that they're just trying to get their message out
...good for them.

Re: Health

Yeah, we've been bombarded by a lot of folks under different user names and IPs with some sort of lame non-fly fishing related message wanting to make new friends etc, with the same link at the bottom purporting to go to some drug addiction rehab site, usually from a state no where near where the user claims to be based-- I don't know what they're up to but doubt it's legit. I dumped the link on this one in the event it's just there to capture data from board members, and will continue to ban these new "users" (granted probably a poor choice of words in this case) from the board as they pop up. The English is usually a bit "off" also in these posts-- nothing wrong with that in and of itself, mine often is, but i wouldn't be shocked to learn that this originated in some far off distant land--- further off and more distant than our friends to the North.

Just leaving this thread up so folks can see what's going on. Perhaps my skepticism is unwarranted. If so, I wish them well, but based on the attempt to blanket the site with similar posts I'm thinking they should get dumped.

It would be different if this was a member "in good standing" with other posts related to fly fishing that wanted to post a link to a legit org of some sort in his/her signature line and if there was an issue of some sort for some reason, I would ask for an explanation (or explained the reasons if any action were taken) via PM to the member.

Just wanted to let you know where I'm coming from on this, but perhaps I'm being too harsh...? Frank if you want me to restore privileges, I'd be happy to.
