Political Views Aside...RANT

No matter how you may have voted, this type of press really lights me up...

"It should surprise no one that President Obama is a wretched fly fisherman, as he cannot bowl and shows only a minimum of competence at golfing. Were it not for his basketball skills, he might be considered the least athletic American president since LBJ, whose idea of physical exertion was hurling empty beer cans out of his convertible as he drove around the Texas Hill Country."


This WENCH has the audacity to blast our Commander & Chief for attempting to learn a great sport, and for getting out of the office & spotlight to do it...(yes, not matter how we voted, he won and is still our country's leader, who deserves respect for holding the position that he does).

What kind of trophy shot was she looking for?! And how long would the poor trout been kept out of the water so that every lens could get their portrait?!

Another Piece...

"Still, one has to wonder: if a president will not allow TV cameras to record an unsuccessful fly-fishing venture, might there be more crucial information he's keeping from the public? How terribly ironic that the president who promised to bring transparency and accountability to the White House has cloaked the most innocent of sporting activities in a Nixonian veil of secrecy."

HONESTLY?! The guy takes a break from the cameras to learn a good roll cast and gets crucified for it?! Not to mention the fact that any good self respecting guide would've requested no press or camera's in his honey hole...and FYI - HE WASN'T IN THE WHITE HOUSE!

To top it all off, she's taking pot shots at the sport itself...

"This past weekend, the president tried his hand at fishing in Montana -- a lovely place to learn this incredibly simple sport in which a string with a hook at the end is dragged though water in order to attract fish."

Really?! Is it that fucking simple?! WOW...and here I've been for the past few years trying to figure out why in the world fly fishing is so dam hard and frustrating sometimes...maybe I’m making this way too difficult. perhaps I don't need my hatch charts, log books, or thermometers...maybe if I just keep my "string" in the water, and "drag" the "hook" to "attract fish", I'll catch more fish...

What an unintelligent, uninformed, moron...

So I ask you readers...with trashy writing like this taking a stab at a potential fly fishing convert...What would EVER make him want to pick up a fly rod again?! And the reason I ask this is that we may have just lost a great ambassador for the sport. Someone who would stand up to dams out west...Someone who doesn't care what promises mining companies make...Someone who's willing to spend for cleaner water...The list of problems that haunt our waters goes on…

I hope for my sake, my future children’s sake, as well as us as a fly flinging community, that Obama picks up a fly rod again. I hope that he's able to look past this type of criticism, dismissing it for the petty lack of journalism and lousy writers that plague of our media outlets.

I hope I’m the first to say it...Fuck you Sara K. Smith!

You can bet that this Trashy, no good, dirty, horseshit reporter has now gotten moved to the "dumb bitch" list for just awful reporting, and even worse, trying to minimalize a sport in which we all consider to be not just a hobby, but a way of life...

HER ENTIRE, SHIT FILLED, DUMB, LAZY, NO GOOD ARTICLE HERE

I'm putting myself on timeout now...
