|chare||It's not just his flies ,although as someone who started fly fishing with feather wings, I'm glad the tying of such beautiful creations is not a dying art...it's what seems to be his attitude toward fishing in general. I somehow doubt whether someone such as Mr. Gablick would ever be offended that I was fishing HIS river. There should be more of his kind around. I think where I fish there are...perhaps you should visit sometime. My apologies for intruding on your thread...it certainly didn't seem good natured...it seemed real to me.|

I have been there. Perhaps I did not qualify the thread enough with the title or the introduction? It is supposed to be incorrect and irreverent and a guilty indulgence we all share.
I'm not quite sure why you would want to change the nature of the post given the facts outlined, maybe it's a glass houses situation
Mr. Gablick does tie beatiful flies there is no doubt about that.
So go ahead fish any river on the island. You have my permission and when they call you names you just tell them I said it was okay.
There's nothing to get twisted about N I

Perhaps you should visit his site and see what I mean...but, then again, perhaps you're an i$$ot?

Did a search for "Black Doctor" Atlantic Salmon fly recently and came upon a beautiful specimen tied by Joe Gablick. I then visited his site. It's definitely worth a look. I think it's guys like him who should be welcomed on any river. I think it would be a pleasure to fish with him anywhere.

Well, I didn't know you had any jet boats but I knew you were just joking around and that is the same way I meant my post to be. An acre and a half of lawn needs to be mowed, there are packages to unpack in the shop and tackle to be shipped but I find this discouse with my cyber friends to be much more entertaining.

Lighten up already.....
The thread is just a light hearted bit of whimsy poking fun at folks including ourselves, as the owner of at least two different jet outboards that I use in Rivers I can laugh at the "Tiller Monkey" image as well as anybody.

In reality I consider Mr. Moonlight to be an alright guy. I was just poking him a little because as soon as I read his post I immediately thought of
"Admiral JetSled" whom I would never refer to as a "Tiller Monkey". Firstly I like the Admiral and secondly he might twist my body into the shape of one of his famous "Snake Rolls"

Hey MJC and Poppy,
Your attitude is more typical of the fisherpersons "from away" that I see on the rivers I fish. You are to be congratulated! It's a pleasure to have a conversation with them in such a beautiful setting. I've never fished anywhere else but around here but would certainly like to. I think I'd think twice though with folks around like the others who have expressed an opinion here. You're right...some of the locals(not many, thank goodness) need more of a lesson in etiquette than those from away. The ones I see are truly grateful to be able to fish in such a beautiful place where the fish are plentiful and the company pleasant.

Very Good one...
Ryan (Sparkey) should post this but he may not think of it so here goes.
Big Apes roaring by in Jet Sleds are from this day forward going to be called "Tiller Monkeys" around our campfire.
Thanks Ryan I was wondering if Tiller was Out Board Tiller good one.
Maybe its not so politically incorrect to chastise Tiller Monkeys but I am sure someone will be offended. I can't wait to holler this at the appropo time and "Ape".

For he who pull plugs, dead drifts, or casts spinners through the water you're fishing as they float by: Bubba
Plural form: Bubba Hatch
The best hatches occur on or follow large runs, openers, and holidays.
Best comment by a bubba (my Dad): "for a fly boy you sure didn't mind sitting out the rain under the canvas in Bubba's boat!"

Mike, I can tell you've been to the "zoo hole" on ..
the upper rogue during the spring king run. It's gotten 'so bad' the Oregon State Police (our usual game wardens) 'required' the fish and game dept to close the upper 1 mile of river at 7PM (not dark until 8:30/give or take) due to the number of fights, alcohol related 'incidents,' etc. They just got tired of having to arrest people.
As you might guess, the 'zoo hole' (aka hatchery hole) and down is where the fish tend to congrigate in the largest numbers. It's just amazing to watch these clowns do there thing this time of the year. Combat fishing taken to the 'nth degree.'

Being as I'm a retired (tired) trucker I know more then a few "pet names" for ignorant fisherpersons, but I can honestly say I have seen much more BAD behavior by the "locals" then by the visitors. Take care, MJC
