Tripudio En Lacus out of Knoxville, Tenn. has an article about what is considered to be sporting in the context of turkey hunting and goes on to say that sarcastically that other sports should try to be as sporting. About fly fishing the author says: "Fly fishermen will have to speak Latin. Since every story I read about fly-fishing is full of Latin names, why not just make fly fishermen learn the whole language? If that's too tough, make anyone carrying a fly rod have to speak pig Latin." If I did not think better of the author I would say they were taking a swipe at our gentle sport. I have a good mind to tell them to "Tripudio en lacus!" or in English "go jump in the lake!" (registration required to view the article but it is free)
