Fly Fishing Geeks

We here at are pleased to announce that we have been selected to receive the most honored title of "Fly Fishing Geek." We would like to thank our parents, spouses, fishing buddies, and of course, the Academy, for this great honor. It is with great pride that we accept this award and place this badge of honor on our site.

We will do our best to live up to the example set forth by those geeks who have gone into the river before us. We might have pocket protectors in our fishing vests and yes, we watched our copy of the Trout Bum Diaries on a 106" projection system with surround sound, but that doesn't mean we don't love fishing as much as the next guy.

We can double haul, tie flies, and fix your wireless network, just don't ask us to do it all at the same time. We might not row a drift boat or fish the storied waters of the West (very often) but we did manage to build a fishing frame for our whitewater raft out of conduit and pipe insulation. It floats our favorite Tennessee tailwater just fine.

Again, we thank you for the support and confidence you have shown us as we welcome all fly fishing geeks into the fold with open oars.

Wait a minute, you gave yourselves an award??

Frankly, that's just the kind of thing I'd do, and I'm kinda pissed I didn't think of it myself.

As for the award itself, the Trout Underground doesn't have a projection TV, but I do wireless just fine, and was also a member of the high school chess team, which should earn some serious points.

I can't believe I've been snubbed by the academy yet again...

Be ye snubbed no longer!

Your qualifications have been reviewed and are duly noted. Consider your site added to the (soon to be created) Geekly Roll of Honor as a certified fly fishing geek. Feel free to use the associated site badge. The intention is to link them to a page of fly fishing geek links in the very near future.
