    Exclamation So Our Forum Ranks 12th Place huh?

    I read a post stating that in a poll concerning Fly Fishing Forums we, us, right here, the NAFFF, came in at 12th place

    I replied that this proves true a quote of W.C. Fields and ask you to guess which quote from this famous American would best describe how our forum came in at 12th place.

    Give it your best shot all you W.C. fans, I'll let you know which one I'm thinking of if you can't get it and it's driving you nuts, send a PM


    I posted the answer on post #13, I guess it was an obscure quote.

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

    "Hell, I never vote for anybody, I always vote against."

    Seems to fit.

    I like this one though -
    "A woman drove me to drink and I didn't even have the decency to thank her."

    See ya'll later, heading out right now on a four day river trip.

    “If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no point in being a damn fool about it.”

    maybe 12th is ok... ...I don't care how someone else ranks the forum.

    Here's my guess.

    How about

    Reporter: What would your dad say if he knew you drank two bottles of liquor a day?

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    These are good, however none are the one I remember. It was a line in a movie I saw that had him in it a long time ago so it isn't a well known quote. let's keep quoting the old fellow and then when the thread has run its course I'll pony up the line I was thinking of
