Reason that Tip can't land fish

So here are my reason why tip can't LAND fish (notice I emphasized LAND so read into that what you will)

1) He reels with his left hand and has a right hand reel
2) He uses a bent 8 penny nail for a hook.
3) It is too dark at 2 AM in the morning when he usually is up to see the fish when it gets close.
4) Using Dynomite in swift water just washes your catch away.
5) Size 26 midges doesn't hold a steelhead well.
6) The new bungy cord line he is testing doesn't make for a good hook set.
7) He dunks his flies in Scotch and at 4 AM the fish know it is too early to be drinking.
8) Who cares because at least he hooks fish unlike me the founding member of the WWSC club.

This is fun people lets keep this thread open. We are all trying to laugh a little.

JJ,

How could you! This is not mis-information.

Who has reasons 9 and 10?

14) His advanced age has caused his reflexes to slow so he doesn't react quickly enough to the fish when fighting it.

I am very pleased that you all can find such pleasure at my expense

A few random thoughts in response.

JJ: Maybe if you dunked your flies in a good single malt you could drop your membership in the WWSC club. I know you think that Yukon Jack is mother's milk but then again you have lousy taste in whiskey. By the way, do they still give you a free skirt with every bottle of YJ you buy?

Rich: Truer words have never been spoken

Moonlight: You my friend may be the only sane one. Cheers!

Brian: It's not how deep you plow, but how long you stay in the drift.

Sparkey: Not sure where you are talking about.

OC: Nope, that actually was pretty damned easy. I simply found out I was allergic to bushes.

18: He needs to stop fishing for Golden Natives and fish for Steelhead.

Just a rumor I have heard.
