    You remember that guy Rocky? He was kindve a bum, lived on the river courtesy of his missus. That guy would be out there with a long cane pole and heavy streamer that he just jigged along the undercuts.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Why can I post on some topics but others tell me my comment needs approval?

    Good question, I'll look into it. I've never see this before.

    Why can't I change my signature in my profile settings?

    Rocky's no bum. He's done a lot of things, including building and selling houses. Right now he's a stay at home dad and is restoring the place next door as a carpentry work shop. You may have seen him using a streamer with his cane pole Tenkara set up, but more likely it was what we call his Big Ugly Nymph. It's deadly on Susquehanna smallmouth as well. Rocky's also one of the best casters I know. As a teen he was taught by "Uncle Lefty" when his dad and Kreh were Baltimore Sun colleagues. He and I have gone to a few mountain creeks officially fishless due to acid rain, but actually full of little brookies that will hit anything that floats - sort of like shad fishing, mindless fun but with dry flies and a 2 wt rod.

    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.

    I always just assumed he was a bum.

    He used to always come down and check to see who was fishing. Not fishing himself, but he’d always show up if someone was parked up there.

    But is it the weirdest?

    If this Rocky guy turns out to be a Bernie-bro we will have come full circle.

    Stay tuned!
