    Another year, another long period of cabin fever and, hopefully a little levity to ease all the tension.

    Rules:
    1. One word reply for the last word offered up -- preferably fishing related where you can
    2. Keep it clean and out of the gutter (I know, that's a lot to ask this bunch of hoodlums)

    I'll start...

    Maybe a new approach for levity... Puns? Limericks? New Photoshop thread? Photo location guessing game? Ugliest fly that consistently catches fish? Photos of "retired flies" that go into your personal hall of fame with accompanying story?

    My problem with 'one word' is it is one long thin constant squirt of meaningless logorrhea...

    (On the other hand I guess that's the one word I got...)

    I like the Wadin' Boot's idea of a progressive limerick. Each contributor adds the next line (remember: limericks are five lines, with an AABBA rhyme scheme) - sixth contributor starts new limerick.

    I'll start with a classic format example. First line:

    There once was an angler named Boots


    one word contribution:

    Hey, sorry about that. I've fixed it for you (see above) to protect your privacy. ;)

    Of course, you've got 18,519 PUBLIC posts out there so with that kind of verbosity everyone knows you. :)
