Ronan's report

Friday 17th February, 2012

I just got home from work, and sat down in my Fish Pit/Man Cave with my newest Fly Fishing Magazine. It is the only Canadian one left I think, though the "Newfoundland Outdoorsman" maybe still running but that is more a regional ($2dollar word alert) periodical. Well the headline on this magazine screams that they have the scoop on the latest and best killer fly combos and that they have the scoop on all the best for me the unworthy fly fisher etc, etc… I have noticed this is a trend lately with this mag, as they are the only one left in Canada, well that makes them the best right!

Well I beg to differ the other 150 + magazines I have on my shelves are the best!

I have been collecting Fly fishing and Fly tying magazines for the past 20 plus years, cataloging the flies that I like and making note of the indispensable can’t do with out information that this or that author just discovered and for a small fee from the publisher will share with my uninformed ass.

It is February 16th and winter here in Canada, that may account for my foul mood on being informed how uninformed I am to not have known this, and how happy I should be to have this author let me in on his secret. When a biased author tells me that they have the answer to catching winter trout and that theirs is the only answer, and then and then goes on to spew all about the only fish you can catch in the winter is a STEELHEAD, and that they would rather catch them instead of trout. Well what is the Text thing for that "SMFH"

What gets me is that people will actually fall for this as well it is written in the last and greatest fly fishing magazine in CANADA!

I am going to hide in the Pit for a bit longer and hope that this spring and summer bring some relief , but then again I may just go out and catch some of those non-STEELHEAD trout that are not catch-able in the winter during my next days off. In the mean time do not fall for this old gag..

A student at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the Greater Idaho Falls Science Fair, April 26. He was attempting to show how conditioned we have become to alarmists practicing junk science and spreading fear of everything in our environment. In his project, he urged people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical "dihydrogen monoxide."

And for plenty of good reasons, since:

1. it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting

2. it is a major component in acid rain

3. it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state

4. accidental inhalation can kill you

5. it contributes to erosion

6. it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes

7. it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients

He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical.

Forty-three (43) said yes,

six (6) were undecided,

For you non-chemist types, dihydrogen monoxide or H2O is water.
