Can’t imagine another forum where ‘Use of dead garden birds’ wouldn’t get you banned

All right, taxidermy maybe. But surely that’s it, certainly as far as forums that don’t involve multiple passwords and Third World server hosts are concerned.

But this is flyfishing, so no-one bats an eyelid when someone starts a thread whose opening sentence extols a dead chaffinch that “smelled pretty bad but had some really nice hackles”.

I made the mistake of reading this thread while eating a sandwich and I tell you what; these guys can rhapsodise about natural product all they want, I’m clearly a ‘synthetic materials’ guy to the core.
