Good morning. The name is Stephen and I am sliding over to this and other forums from another site. I live in Christiansburg, VA and have worked at VT for close to 30 years. Obviously I am a big Hokie fan.
I've been checking this forum for some time and I recognize the names of some. Now I am able to view the pics, which I like, particularly those of the Smith and SOHO.I enjoy both the Smith and SOHO. I have no idea how long I've been fishing the Smith. I know I visited the river regularly during the high school years and that was in the early 70's. I started fishing the SOHO in the early 80's I think. When you get some age, dates and events seem to escape, even important engagements like angling. I now refrain from beating myself up over forgetting past angling schedules and travels, because I can't remember my wedding anniversary or wife's birthday either. It is all good.
Thanks for having me. Regards.
This use to be a nice place :angel: Slipperycrawler you should have posted here instead.http://www.brfff.com/forum/index.php/board,36.0.html
I do still post "there" and I don't think I have been banned. At least I wasn't as of this morning. I am simply looking for other territories. I hope I have not invaded and diminished the sanctity of this particular spot. If so, then please let me know – no questions and no ill feelings.
There are some posters here that I have met, and there are others, from reading their stuff, that I would like to meet. I have no hidden agenda, other than trying to learn more about those 2 rivers that I cherish. Most likely I will never post any resemblance of a trip/stream report. And as of now, I don't take pics of fish or trips, BUT I do enjoy those presented by others. I continue to collect about as much as I fish and I do like discussing critters and always learn something from other anglers.
Jus checking, we got standards here
I am still evaluating the "standards" TM. After perusing past and present posts, I quickly realized that the evaluation was sure to be a daunting task. As of now, I can find no "standards", which is ok, because there is value in a locale where the only rule is there are no rules or the only standard is there are no standards. Heck, I am still trying to figure out how to correctly use the word suckage and what it means. Initially I assumed suckage was a puerile response to another angler's success. But later after assessing my own sophomoric tendencies, I am not sure my initial assumption was correct, which I think is major suckage. There, did I use the word accurately?

I just showed up at the door step and slipped in when the door opened!
