Acklins 2010

Hey I am thinking about the soon-to-arrive bitter cold, snow, slush, ugh and how nice it's going to be to escape right in the thick of it! It's a good time to start the planning process.

Our friend Felton Rolle has just built a spankin' new place on Acklins and I'm putting a group together from the FORUM to make a deep winter sanity trip down there...

White crushed coral sands and turquiose waters, mangroves and bonefish - adjacent to bluewater wahoo and dorado with lobster and cocktails waiting for dinner at the lodge! Beat the crap out of shoveling

Who's in?

At this point it doesn't look good. Wife wants to go somewhere warm on vacation and I only get 5 weeks of vacation time.

I'd potentially be interested in returning to Acklins. Missed it last year. Need more info on dates, details, dollars. I assume you are talking about a week long venture.
Thanks.

Hmm... It seems like this forum has become a closed society centered around southeast New England coastal fishing and where we're going during the Winter. By "closed society" I mean the same group of anglers rehashing the same old questions/events. There's not a lot of comment here considering the WORLDWIDE SCOPE OF FLYFISHING unless it's by the same old group of contributors. You've lost the freshwater crowd and anyone else regardless of where they fish. I once was told in this forum that it was the "Striped Bass" forum. Enough said, I guess. Either shrink this down to what it is or make an effort to expand it.

Poster By Millerbrown on 3-16-2009 --In the spring clave thread:

"It's been a while since I've visited this forum. Do you guys have any idea what you sound like?? This is like a secret society. Why don't you just get off the web and just email each other with all your personal chatter! Someone new would have no idea what you are talking about.

Just an observation."

Poster by Millerbrown on 9-27-2008 - Forum posting

"I used to subscribe to a half dozen fly fishing magazines just a few years ago but let all but two go because most of what I read was redundant. Just a new angle on old subjects. I would guess that "forums" become much of the "same old same old". What's worse is that forums have a tendency to become nothing more than conversations between "friends". Also, there's nothing worse then to see a good subject digress to "off topic" chit chat. That's what happens here and at other like venues. That static should be left to PM's.

That's it for starters."


Interestingly enough Mr. Millerbrown signed onto the Clave dinner thread....to join in with the "friends" I suppose.


This thread is on the Bonefish forum with responders from all over the country and some foreign........sounds like MB has a "secret" agenda in posting that remark here. Perhaps, maybe...something about "southeast New England coastal fishing"?????

Forums, communities, "societies" et. al. - are simply what you make them.

If you choose to stand along the sidelines and comment on how poorly the team is playing, you're not adding any value. However if you train, perfect your game and jump onto the field then you're making something happen.

We are all empowered with the ability to make great posts. **** or get off the pot as the saying goes. Have a nice day!
