Likely it was. But the conversation wasn't about that small sliver of FFO water, so his comment was as contextually incorrect as it was unappreciated.

You clearly goofed, resulting in a comment that was out of place and rude. Doubling down instead of manning up isn't a sign of maturity.

The COís love that kind of thing.
I get the animosity toward the bait guys that don't follow the rules. Every waldron's dugout worm container I pick up adds to it.

I also get why fly fishing suffers from a rather well-deserved elitist perception that's off putting to lots of folks who would otherwise give it a shot. This is the one we could actually do something about but it'd take a rather unlikely change in attitude.

It's a joke. Lighten up Francis.

I couldn't stop thinking about this thread last night as I was fishing the new Cortland 444 type 6 full sink line I had just purchased last week. So here's my take on the Cortland line.... It sucks!!! Well compared to the Rio deep 7 there's no contest.

I fish a sage TCX 5wt. My previous Rio line was a 7 wt full sink 8-9" per second I believe. My TCX had no issues throwing such a heavy line. I bought the cortland in a 6 Wt and the difference is night and day. I'm just not a fan.

New update...... I purchased a new rio deep 7 line from amazon. I fished it twice before the outer core of the line split by the "retrieval reminder". I called Rio on my way home from fishing last night and told them my displeasure and how embarrassed they should be for changing their sinking line.

The CS rep explained to me that in 2014 them went from a mono core, to a braided core. That's why it is much less rigid then the original deep 7. He assured me that the line I have has been discontinued and they've gone back to the mono core. He also put a new version of sinking line in the mail for me to replace the junk one I bought two week ago.

If you're looking for the new line its called the fathom series.
