Dear Abbey... err.. Uncle Angler


Recommended Posts

As Webmaster, and one of the moderators at NLFT - I often get questions from our users, as sort of a surrogate Agony Aunt (or Uncle Angler) as the case may be...


I'd like to relate a recent email I received from a ...well known member of the board - who shall not remain nameless...



Dear Uncle Angler:


I have been so blessed in my life. Great parents, great family, great job (that even lets me go to New Zealand for a year...), and great education.


When I got this government job, I could hardly wait to spend all my copious holiday time enjoying my favorite pastime -- Still water fly fishing. I got my own little fishing boat (My yellow canoe named Chiquita...) and tried to get my wife to join me, but she just never liked fishing. Finally, one day at the Fly Shop, I got to talking to Sam the shop owner who it turned out loves stillwater fishing as much as I do. We quickly became fishing buddies. As I said the wife doesn't care about fishing; she not only refuses to join us she always complains that I spend too much time fishing.


A few weeks ago Sam and I had the best fishing trip ever. Not only did I catch the most beautiful trout you've ever seen, only a few minutes later Sam must have caught his little brother! So I took a picture of Sam holding up the two nice trout that we caught and showed the picture to the wife hoping that maybe she'd get interested. Instead she says she doesn't want me to go fishing at all anymore! AND she wants me to sell the boat! I think she just doesn't like to see me enjoying myself.


What would you do? Tell the wife to forget it and continue my hobby or quit fishing and sell the Chiquita as she insists?

PS: Here is a link to a picture of Sam showing off the trout we caught.





:blink: Get rid of that narrow minded wife. :blink:

Buahahahahahahahahaa.... It started out like a letter from Dave. :laugh:



Dear Uncle Angler,


Whenever I fish Stauffer I get my fly caught in a willow tree. What should I do?

Yes, I could VERY well see this becoming a NEW feature in the newsletter! Of course, there the nameless should remain nameless.

A few minor corrections.

I think my fishing partner's name was John, not Sam

and we caught Salmon, not trout.


Here's the photo of Sam (alias John) that I took.


Now I know John (alis Sam) ain't a bad looking dude,

But I gotta get a new camera and get my glasses changed,

and John (er Sam) has to get a nicer bathing suit.

Don't show my wife that other photo (She's only seen this one)

or I'd have to sell more than the boat.

Awwweee, the summer of Sam. A summer to remember for sure ;)


Sam spelt backwards is mas. And that's where I'll be going for confessional if I keep looking at that pick of Sam :wacko:

Glad that stirred things up...


Dave sent me an email joke with that story, and photo - of course - the original about about bass-fishing...


I took creative licence to change the fish to trout from bass, and made the text more .... evil.
