The right wing lunacy espoused on the fly fishing message boards sets in at the end of the fishing season. It is most acute in the darkest hours of winter. The fly fishing Robert Redford has by then become a Dr. Mengele. But it is semi-deliberate… And certainly a form of delusion and fantasy.
Its cycle is annual…
It is a psychological menstruation of fishing men that can be observed every year, starting in late October.
Here is a series of text messages addressing the phenomenon.
One of the things I like about neff (and fishing) is having something in common w people I otherwise have nothing in common with. For example republicans. And morons. A lot of overlap there. But anyway. When guys just start dumping Fox News garbage on there it makes it harder to like the site. I boycotted for like three months couldn’t deal with it.
Yes. You said it well. Can I post this to my blog?
I meant magazine.
That’s good stuff.
What you just wrote.
It is good.
Post whatever you want.
What shall I call you?
Call me Ishmael.
Are you going to preface it with anything? Or just stick it up there?
I just liked the idea.
It was well said too.
Let’s face it, I need material.
Your words are good tho.
Charlie is brilliant.
That you can monetize.
But now I am building a worker owned cooperative.
Since I do most of the work, that makes me look suspiciously like a capitalist.
Who doesn’t pay.
Now I give credit to all those who contribute.
I want a paying job someday that I actually like.
Don’t we all. Speaking of, gotta get back to the salt mine…
