    Note to self - this guy is sitting in NH - getting jollies by stirring the pot. So whenever I see a post from him from this point forward, I am going to avoid it with extreme prejudice...

    The dry fly purist culture is alive and well in that part of the country. I've experienced in person many a time on work trips. These guys I talk to out there know little to nothing about our fisheries here, and turn their noses up when I tell them how we go about approaching our fisheries.

    Since all of their streams are full of small, very grabby, very surface oriented trout and char, they think that everyone else in the world must have the same types of fisheries available.

    What it really comes down to is who really gives a f*#k what you think. You seem to care and that's all that really matters.... to you.

    The broader your knowledge of the fish and the techniques used to catch fish, the more you can enjoy different fisheries and conditions.

    Pretty simple, really!

    You are exactly right. The messenger (me) and not the message is being attacked. An intelligent discourse seems impossible.

    As the OP I would ask that this thread be locked.

    Even though it was rather predictable, good job trolling...

    You are laughable indeed sir. You chastise a huge majority of fly fisherman, say that their methods are not worth anything and then expect an intelligent discourse! "You might as well use a hickory stick" "In fact, the only difference between having a nymph fly under a bobber and a worm is that the worm is cheaper. ", was intelligent discourse? No wonder people think you are a joke. What was intelligent about that discourse? Really, help me understand your position in a more intelligent manner.

    I asked you three questions to see if there was any intelligent reasoning behind your statements. You replied with "I know it when I see it." Not very intelligent.

    Always enjoy when people suggest a thread be locked because they don't like the direction it's going. I self lock many threads by simply not reading them.

    Pretty simple, really!

    Most bolt threads go the same way on Cascadeclimbers.com...so I will add an unrelated but appropriate image. The vibe is the same.
    I realize this adds nothing to the discourse...but this discourse has nothing to offer so it's a wash ;)

    Don't ask me about Via Feratta.

    There is this cool feature, where you can click on someones name, visit their profile and then select "Ignore". Really a nice feature that has allowed me to enjoy many forums without having to be bothered by the posts of the elite.

    KMudgeon, you might as well be saying" Shut down my thread because people are responding to the intelligent information I put out. I was only seeking discourse." It is cowardice to run away from the discourse you created.

    Ok villagers…. fire the castle…. Rid the forum of this person and his narrow minded thoughts.

    Also, there is a reason an intelligent discourse is impossible…. a very good one. Your original thought stinks.

    That's a noble concept that I can truly endorse, self locking I'm going to try this.
