To provide equal representation and adequate opportunity for all anglers to experience every genre of "flyfishing" I'll contact the exalted leader of Indicators Anonymous (Sparkey) and check the feasability of initiating the first annual "BobberClave".
Just a few simple parameters and pertinent info;
1. No scotch over a year old allowed. Wine with screw off caps, boxed vino, beer costing under 1.50 a 6 pack, and carbonated malt beverages encouraged.
2. Cigars (other that Swisher Sweets) not allowed. We'd like to think we'll cater more to Camel Straight and Kool crowd.
3. Sage, Loomis, T&T, etc...don't even show up. We'll be supplying the hardware...(K-mart is closing down 300 more stores, sure there's some ammo launchers we can pick up cheap there).
4. Celebs coming? Sure...working on the Bud girls and trying to bend the ear of Jimmy Houston and Shaw Grigsby for their interpretation of the integration of Carolina salamandar flippin' and the Snake Roll.
5. Of course, everyone needs to bring their own supply of bobbers (indicators for the more polished crowd)....big, three-inch fat, natural cork ones, painted day-glo pink and orange for maximum visibility when the 1/4 oz lead eyes on the wieghted fly try to drag it under.
6. Transportation (working with the "Bigfoot" monster truck camp for all weather, all terrain transportation needs in incliment weather conditions common to winter steelheading) will be provided free of charge from selected areas of cultural interest in proximity to the clave location ie...Red Rooster in Humptulips.
7. One phase of BobberClave will be dedicated to dealing with the social stigmas placed upon individuals employing indicators by traditional speycasters, greased line propogators, and those who would not approach a river with anything not tied on an Alec Jackson hook. This segment of BobberClave was scheduled when an indicator fisherman was pelted with Tulamore Dew bottles thrown by anglers dressed in what was described by the victem as "lots of tweed and oilcloth". Poor guy lost his foam Buckhorn Beer hat in the incident.
We at Indicators Anonymous feel that the flyfishing public needs to be informed and educated on the proper way to huck a"big ole' bobber and bug" in a manner condusive to productive fish catching, social accountability, and fellowship among like minded individuals (registration fee does not include table dances, but IA will accept Marlboro proof of purchase boxtops or CamelBucks as partial payment).
