From the Mouths of Babes Comes Thread Wisdom

Here's an interesting and humorous take on thread color choice, from Singlebarbed.  My preferred color for trout flies is 6/0 olive (95% of the time).

Has the Dumbing Down of America Reached Fly Fishing?

In this short blog entry by Merwin, he refers to it as flippancy, but that's not what I would call it.  It's more like the spoon-fed generation.  It's no wonder so many people are unhappy.  They don't want to work hard for anything, so they don't get the intellectual and emotional joy that comes from personal growth in their job or activities......they want to be boss right out of college, they want the magic fly or technique without trying to find it themselves, they want to be shown where to fish - not just the river, but the exact fishing hole complete with GPS coordinates of where the rocks are that the fish can be found behind...........

She told me, "I wish I were a trout........"

............that way you would be obsessed with me."

A friend's wife told him this as he asked if he might go fishing......again.

A couple of comments from the peanut gallery:

Maybe she should learn to fish?
Or, ask to go along and read or walk while he fishes? 
Maybe she should find her own tying flies?
Maybe she should be happy that he has something to do besides sit around the house and grow a gut?
Maybe she should be happy she KNOWS he is fishing, and not doing something that might really cause friction?

Maybe I should just go fishing and mind my own business.........

Anyone seen my wife? 

Last time I saw her she was acting like a trout.
