Poseur’s ruin

Recently, while fishing the Yellow Breeches, I ws picking up a few fish on the IPW.

“A young fellow was downstream 15 or 20 yards and finally yelled up and asked if I was fishing Baetis or …. he spouted off a couple other scientific names.

“Now, I have never bothered to learn those names. The good old common, everyday names are my cup of tea.

“So, being a smart a**, I replied that I was using a Propholacticus Streptococci.

“His reply was, ‘Oh, thanks.’

“I believe I snickered the rest of the morning.”
