Just wondering what classifies you as a pro? see article below:

Found in Smoky Mountain News

Fly-fishing duo takes top spot in local tournament
By Julie Ball

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As a teenager, Josh Stephens worked summers as a rafting guide on the Nantahala River. He'd watch as trout came up on the water to eat flies.

Then a friend, David Woody, introduced him to fly-fishing. That was it for Stephens. He was hooked. He began fishing practically every day, spending hours on local rivers.

He packed his bags and moved to Wyoming and Yellowstone to fish.

MOD Note:
post a like to the article not the whole article..

A Professional fly fisherman is someone who gets paid for instructing, guiding, or fishing.

So, a professional whore is a prostitute? Right?  Whats a part time prostitute called?

A man on his way home from the bar decides to take a short-cut through an unlit park.

A woman approaches him and offers to fuck his brains out for $25.

The man thinks to himself that this is a chance too good to miss, so hands over the money.

She leads him into a bush and they get under way.

A policeman happens to pass by, hears them at it and notices the bush shaking.

He approaches, shines his flashlight on the pair and asks the man what he's doing.

The man replies calmly, "I'm just having sex with my wife, officer. Do you mind?"

The officer responds, "I'm sorry, sir, I didn't realize it was your wife."

The man quickly replies, "That's quite alright, officer - until you shone your flashlight on her face, neither did I."

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!

To my knowledge, neither Woody or Josh make any money as fly fisherman, save the money they win in tournaments.

Both are great fisherman and all around great guys.  The fly fishing world needs more of them.
