  • Origin of FF@
01 October is the earliest entry in the current Archives .. but              
commentary lends us to believe it began a while earlier. But it 
doesn't seem likely that it began much earlier than October of 1990. 
The first Moderator seems to be Tom Williams .. or at least he was 
the first 'offical' designated as such.

I thought that I would give a brief report on the salmon situation that I encountered on the Salmon River in and near Pulaski, NY. Frank, thanks for the advice. You mentioned , however, that you usually fished between 10 PM and midnite, but upon reading the somewhat confusing handbook wasn't sure if that was legal or not where I was. I did manage to go out early Sunday morn and get a strike on a fly. I had the fish on ( about 20-25 pounds, which in this instance is smallish ) for about 25 minutes but he managed to get away upon netting. For the most part we spent most of our time lobbing egg-sacks into the lake itself. Fishing was slow but my partner managed a decent size salmon ( 30 lbs. ) and a 12 lbs. Lake Trout and I was smudged. The atmosphere was bearable at least.
The sight in Pulaski of all the foul-hookers elbow-to-elbow trying to snag a salmon was as a grotesque an exhibition of "sportsmanship" as I have ever witnessed. It reminded me of a row of slot-machines in Atlantic City where people with emotionless faces put in there coin, pull the handle and see if there's anything there. It was depressing to say the least and really brought home to me the fact that alot of people just want to catch and kill fish period.
My suggestion for the appeasement of the masses is this: The NY F&G should build a narrow sluice that the fish are made to swim up and the "fishermen" could then pay a few bucks, step up to the sluice and try to bonk a fish on the head w/ a ball-peen hammer. It would save these people a lot of money and generate a bunch for the F&G. As well as providing anglers who want sport that opportunity also, and everybody would be happy.

The salmon snagging reminds me of shad fishing on the Susquehann River. Fishermen were standing elbow to elbow, tangling up their lines, trying to catch anything that swam. That was 20 years ago. Now, there aren't shad runs anymore, and you can't fish for shad in Md. Most of these guys took up trout fishing on the put-&-take streams, and unfortunately, they brought their angling-etiquette with them.

*** Conrad.. put away the sword and cancell the trip to Norm C.'s friend of the nether-world... I can save the 'Merikans' from the doom you propose... for I [and I am sure many others of us lowly 'Merikans'] can even out the balance of fishing precariosity so imbalanced by 'Wild Bill'. You say you fish once a month to WB's 2X/week... well I get out [at least since college began for me 4.5 years ago] only about 1X/quarter... YOW!! That's correct only one time every stinkin' 3 MONTHS!!! So against WB, you are about 1:12. However, I am in the range of 1:36!!... 3X your deficit. That means that my paltry little time on the water alone, has more than evened the deficit caused by WB.
So, I believe you can call off the rotation hex and allow those of us 'Merikans... which BTW includes the WIZ... sheez, consider what the WIZ might have cooked up for the Zelanders if you had pulled that trigger so fast... YIPES!! that was close!
NOW...aren't you glad we had this little chat? Boy, I sure would hate the think of the possible calamitous events you almost put into motion... PHEW!!!
Now back to our regular shedualed CYBER FLY SHOP discussion... but stay tuned for another thrilling tale in the adventures of .... CONRAD THE BARBARIAN
