I have a healthy fear of drowning, almost paranoia. I wont go in the "swim holes" when my family will.
So, why do I feel so safe in the middle of a lake on a toon? Why do i feel so comfortable standing in the middle of the river up to my waist with water rushing past me... dreaming of Steelies.

Are there any others that have this paranoia and compulsion??

Oh.. and to add to my misery, I am allergic to FISH!

If I can't see bottom, I won't swim.

If I wade in muddy water, I'll poke the bottom with the butt end of my rod with each step just to be sure I won't step in a hole or a drop off. :redface:

You and OntheFly make it sound like you are the ones obsessed with Carp, you bring them up in threads that have nothing to do with them. Either that, or just hoping I will stumble upon them and have something oppositional to say.

Ever since the issues that have taken place, you two bring them up ALL THE TIME. Drop it, why try to start more issues that can be avoided with simple silence. Some people just can't get the common sense that some things are better off not being said. Of course, somebodies gonna see my remark and then quote eggs and lol at it.

Grow Up.

Honestly sorry for the Hijack.

I saw a carp eat a duck...There's a reasonable fear there!

In all seriousness, I've got an irrational fear of snakes, slugs, and sharks. Given the right circumstances, I'd probably cry, like, well, a girl.

Dave, Jim... We need to start having meetings to learn how to deal with our fear.
"Cope with Carp 101"
It is a 3 step program..
Step 1 buy bread and bait hook.
Step 2 catch carp and smash with rock.
Step 3 toss in pile and burn with gas.

Meetings will be held when nothing else better is to be done.

Yeah I'm going to agree I'm afraid of a carp to, worried one might get on the end of my line then I would have to touch it to get my hook back from it.
That and needles not tattoo needles but the needles you get shots with. Funny thing is I like tattoos and tattoo needles, go figure.
