I know I have opined on the topic before, but why are there so many people logged in that have pink text for their screen names? I just don't get it. This can't be that exciting of a read. Some of these dudes have had accounts for over 10 years. I mean, shit... post something.

I'll make a deal. I only posted one TR this year and some pics from my school project. If a pinky posts an intro or a TR in the next week, I'll post one too.

No, I've never wondered.  I know for a fact that Doug, Big J, and Tomato Can were members of NOW for 15 years and never went to a meeting.      Al was a card caring member of NOMAS for ~10 years and never participated because he thought it was the National Organization for Men After Sex and was sure the women were supposed to seek his randy affection.  So, I don't question the folks in pink; perhaps they are confused about this forum, or, as I've mentioned before, they could be doing a covert psychological analysis of our maladjusted ways.

I notice the shadow lurkers here and there. Many of them are as regular as anyone here.

Post something you fukkin' wallflowers!

I have lots of stalkers. Steven is one of the few that is "out".

Internet stalkers, yep... definitely a few in here, and I am quite sure I have at least one.

I wondered if someone would connect the dots.

Lurkers and more lurkers.  One said guy I know creeps on me occasionally.  The said person accidentally sent me a friend request at the wee hours of the morning and then cancelled.  Guessing they were showing me off at the bar.

In regards to people not posting, I will say that sometimes less is more.  At least that's what my wife tells me.....  :-\

Lol. I have a social media creeper, and I just deleted a guy last night for name dropping a stream in one of my facebook posts.

But lurkers...
former known personalities who quit or got deleted?
beginners who are embarrassed to ask a question? They won't find help reading the random threads in here.
Alter ego accounts? I have none left.

Me thinks

a) pink weenies don't fish
b) they are wannabes
c) they are spin / bait fishermen
d) all of the above

ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!

I live vicariously through you guys that actually get to fish. I have 3 daughters, two of whom are under 6 and won't let daddy out of their sight! But they do love to fish so I can't sneak off and fish or they'd kill me, but I do take them fishing. It's just not fly fishing and therefor I don't post our outings.
But I have no idea if my name is pink or not.

I agree with the vicarious living comment.  I wish I was fishing more, but my sometimes creaky body doesn't make that as possible as a few years ago.  (And truth beknown, Trout_girl has laid on the yard projects here (new irrigation system, new beds, new sod, new plants  :o ...) so we haven't gotten up to the cabin and the forest as much as usual.  Sorry if that disappoints, but my posts have always been few and far between (except when I won the "Most Smites" award cup a few years back - ah, those were the days  -+; ).

I appreciate the posts and pictures of those of you fishing and hope I will be allowed to stay here, even if I don't post much.

Now, in honor of my Most Smites self, IF YOU DON"T LIKE IT, GO FUCK YOURSELF  :;! !

There.  I feel better...  ;D
