I can't believe that the Sicilian Nympher, long time member and an executive of the club would turn down this very precidious offer.

If you believe that his declining this offer makes you :angry: then let him know here.

Heckling should not be a one way street. :vikinjg::

Agreed. I think it should be you two, for a true "Mexican Standoff", anyways I have turned the thread into a poll now. Cause.. well I know how. =)

 

I think the top two voted for should have to go into "Hell's Kitchen!" but feel free to post the names of other victims here.

Maybe I should run for Parliament...big desk, good food (for free), free shoeshines, lots of staff to do the work and best of all...a great pension plan. O K, I'm in. I'm thinking Minister of All Things Crow....you could be my 2 IC. Morning meetings at Cinnamon Bear cafe and then off to the Crow.

Have no desire to enter the Iron Fly Tyer...way to much pressure for this old guy plus it takes me so darn long to tye a fly we will be well into next years event before I finished the first fly.

 

I'm thinking we need a good 8 more votes to go towards our Chairman. Come on buys and girls vote for Chairman Dave.

Vince:

Voting for the chairman will not work.

I'm the one with the secret ingredient, know it in advance and so it would not be fair.

I'm still looking for a second competitor.

 

Chairman Dave.

 

PS

I am available for the Blind Bugger Ball though.

Not the first time in history that a Chairman could be overthrown. I think the exec could come up with an ACTUAL CHALLENGE for once....

 

OOOHHH!!

I'm thinking you're on to something.

 

Vince

Honestly, I don't think Vince could tie his shoelaces. I've never seen him do that (very well) either. You can take him. :vdaylove:

 

I am just getting "warmed up" for the "Hecklefest!" (to be).

 

:rangerbob::devilbob:

 

P.M.S. - I just threw Scratch's name in to the hat above since he got marginalized.. erm.. nominated. Looks like he only needs 5 votes to beat Dave. Make it HAPPEN! :)

 

P.P.M.S. - Make it a feminine hygiene product they have to tie with too eh Chairman? I will look forward to the naming of the patterns then.

 

"

" is already TM (RB)

 

P.P.P.M.S. - I have no actual knowledge of feminine hygiene products, other then what the missus stocks in her cabinet... or sends me to the store to buy. I hate those heavy shopping days.

Vince doesn't do shoelace tying. When you get to his age, you get shoes with velcro straps -- right Vince? :lol:

Well, the Iron Fly Tyer went off OK.

Vince was a no show, pleading illness :poke:

As a result, Brain was the substitute chairman, and Yours Truly had to fill in as challenger #2

And an evil chairman took over. He gave us dork hats to wear too.

He took away all our favourite tools and material except for scissors, hackle pliers, pliers and bodkin. :o

Then he gave us a package consisting of four hooks, one hackle and three bungie cords.

So one had to disassemble the bungie to get thread and other components .

Dang but that stuff frays easily and is slippery as heck :censored:

Needless to say it was a challenge :stooges:

Rick Leblanc rose to the challenge best and is the new Iron Fly Tyer. :clap:

I came second and Barry White, the defending champ third. It was close though.

Congratulations Rick!!!

Just wait 'till next year!!!

Was an entertaining evening for sure!

 

It would be interesting (and fun) to see the flies tested to see how they fair on the water!

Speaking of the flies, Dave, what happens to them afterward? I guess I was so surprised and excited to win, I got all flustered and forgot my work shirt there, and when I got home I thought of the flies. Unless there's some other allocation, I'd love to keep them. Someone joked about it, but I actually would frame them. They'd sure add alot to the telling of the story. But, if they got tossed it's not the end of the world.

 

Anyway, thanks for a great night. I'll never forget it.

Congratulations to Rick as the new Iron Fly Tyer. :bow:

Job well done by Rick, Dave and Barry. :thumbup::clapping:

The participants weren't just thown to the wolves though as I had tried

the same challenge to ensure it could be done. All 3 definately out performed

my attempt.

:hijacked-pirate2:

You should all try it

Let me see...

Three contestants, with one nymph and one wet fly pattern each = 6 flies.

I don't think Vince has fished six hours subsurface in his entire life!!

The idea might be enough for him to call in sick again!!

Hmmm - I suspect that the same could probably be said about DT and top fishing with drys ;)

 

Maybe get both of them out, and DT fishes with the dry flies that were tied during the competition, while Vince fishes the others. :bigsmile::P

Tuber:

Do you want to partner in being the promoter for this event? I think we should call

Ticketmaster and arrange to sell tickets for this event. I expect the demand will be

out of this world. The cheap seats for $100 and up to $5000 for the Gold Section.

:yoda:
