Weird article. I'm glad that guy got it out of his system, he's probably better off for it.

Cast to your own riffle, however that may be.

IMO, the article is meant to be humorous.

The humor comes from exaggerating the little things most of us do.

For example, I am far from an expert on bugs.

But when a non-fly fisherman asks, “How’s fishin’?” and I answer with BWO and caddis are …

They react like I am a true ‘Bug Nerd’ because they have no idea what a BWO is and to them it’s just a little weird.

Someday I’ll learn to just say fishin’ is good.

My answer is always "it's been a bit slow"

I usually just tell the truth about how fishing is, and if I can help someone catch a few extra fish because i gave them some insight into what the fish are feeding on or even give then a few flies so much the better. Why not help someone, after all its fishing not treasure hunting! Besides, its a good way to meet people and develop new friends.
