...When you break up you don't lose half your stuff...

Where as, if you're even thinking about getting married, it's been suggested to find some woman you can't stand, buy her a house, and send her a check ever month. That way you're not subjected to all the stress and costs associated with lawyers and divorce court...

If your cell phone goes off you can consider answering it .... or not.

If you wife finds a 'strange' telephone number or two in the bill, she won't ask the next series of obvious questions.

If you fish, you don't have to seek out of the house at 4am; and worry about the questions that will/would follow.

If your wife loves to travel to Europe, you can prove your 'hobby' is far less expensive than hers. (TRUST ME on this one!) And any one ever heard of a 'hijacking' of a drift boat?

That's hilarious Pete!


A man and woman are having an affair while the woman's husband is away on business. The phone rings and it's her husband. After a short casual chat, she hangs up. The other married man asks "were you nervous talking to him with me sitting right here?".

She answers "not at all, he called to say he won't be home because he's going fishing with you for the whole weekend".

You don't have to hesitate when your fishing partner says

"Let's do it again, right now!"

Where is Tallinn ?

If there is fly fishing for trout or salmon (or any type of fish) here you can have both sex and fly fishing.

Ran into this just innocently surfing today, I promise. Was just looking for a new thinsulate fishing cap.

Looks very interesting though. Now this would be an interesting fly fishing vacation

Funny what passes for steelhead flyfishing nowadays...

Here is the first (and last) steelhead flyfishing thread I read on their forums...

Very creative "Gummie Bears" to imitate spawn, I suppose Juicy Fruits and Dots may work also as a spawn substiture !!

Don't let the bait fishermen see that. In Michigan the regs say you cannot have any type of live bait in your possession when fishing the flyfishing only areas and go into detail as to what that definition is. Do not beleive the DNR could fine you for a box of any of the above in your vest though.

You know I think they might work, and I know the fish will have a hard time getting them out of their teeth, like we do !!:devil: :devil:

PM - looks like Tallin is in Italy...

So if I FF for bass, I can use gummi-WORMS and it'll be o.k.? I'll bet if I tried it I would only get 'Swedish Fish' (what I'd really like to catch is the "Swedish Equestrian Bikini Team"!)

Sprocket -

The last part of your post conjures such images I just had to search up a Swedish Equestrian website...

HERE IT IS: CLICK HERE (http://www.flyfishingforum.com/humor/equestrian.htm)

Got me

Is that an equestrian sport ? Will ask the lady attorney in the next office she is a big equestrian, you know polo matches etc...

Funny world we create. If you tie a piece of yarn on a small hook and whip it out there with a fly line and fool a steelie, you are the height of art, a gift to the tradition, a bretheren amongst the great anglers of times past etc.
But, if you put on a gummy bear, cast it out with a spinning rod, fool a steelie, then you're a beer bellied weasil who should be sent packin. Weird. ;)

You lost me on that one... from what post, comment or evidence did you make that assumption about mankind? :confused:

03-18-2002, 01:44 PM
Juro: you didn't make that assertiion.
It's implied with a little poetic license and some FF eliotism sprinkled in.(again not you, me).
One thing I'm wondering is what you don't like about that thread on the Steelie board.

Talinn is in (Capital City) Estonia.

Juro - that's me on the left!

The origin of this unique group of 18-22 year old women has it's beginnings on the trail from the parking lot to a mountain pond somewhere in N.H.

On theFirst Annual Ice Out Camping & Fishing Extraviganza to [Blankety Blank], we discovered that the road to the trail was closed. We came to fish and fish we shall so we quickly stripped off the "unnessiccary" items - the folding camp chairs and one set of waders and shoes (the float tube and accessories are essencial!). During the 7 mile slog up the hill (while carring 52lb packs), a comment was made regarding a more expedient mode of travel.

After a lengthy discussion, the originally stated skimobilers (yes, there was that much snow packed on the road) somehow morphed into the SEBT - they were nudists at first but even a guy can be naked so we decided that they should have bikinis to encourage a female-only membership.

Since then, the SEBT is mentioned at least once during both the hike up & down (and sometimes at camp depending on the moon phases & length of trip) These women have a way of lightening packs & spirits.

So when you're in the middle of a long trek, mention them to your partner or aloud to yourself and see if your next 5 minutes goes quicker than expected (results may vary).
