So at the comunity college I attend I did a demonstration speech on how I rig up for salmon with my fly rod. It went ok, I'm not the best at speeches, but the very next guy(a 40 something guy) comes up in full waders and a vest with his pole. I just had some line a swivel and a fly. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: Well he starts off by saying, "I dunno what that guy was talkin about with 18-24 inches of leader, I use at least 6 feet!" Then he went on to describe step by step how to floss holding fish in a deep hole:naughty:, and I end up lookin like a chump:mad::rolleyes::(:confused:

dude..thats messed up. ive seen videos where people teach how to floss and what not. it's ridiculous but don't let it get to you. there will always be a handful of decent fisherman such as us to spread the word of good fishing methods tight lines,

I'm sure you did fine- sometimes less is more when it comes to props.

PS- By "a 40-something guy" I'm sure you meant that as a compliment, right?

of course, but this guy is always being rowdy in class, and it gets on my nerves. But when he described steb-by-step how to floss unwilling fish and the class just ooed and awed and drooled all over it really got me going. And I am sure he got a better grade than me too:rolleyes:
