Pat Kelly from Mad River Outfitters in Columbus, OH is a muskie junky. He's been having a good season on the Little Miami River. This predator is a sexy example of what kind of good we're talking about.
My name is Benjamin Michael Whalen. I'm an ex-fly fishing guide with a bit of a Xanax/Heroin addiction. I'm currently detoxing in Arapahoe County Jail.
This follow-up from our post earlier this year - read the rest of the update by Drake brother in arms - Will Rice here.
We're an equal opportunity offender here at the Chum. Whether it's fishing, politics, environment, religion, etc. - our goal is to tow the line and create debate (from all points of view). Throughout our history, we've done the best we can to encourage freedom of speech (comments), with little moderation. We'll continue to do our best to moderate with a long leash - but keep in mind, we're two dudes, a couple of farting dogs, and a pile of day job work that keeps us focused on paying the light bill.
That said, we've noticed an increased number of inappropriate comments (we've done our best to remove the majority of them on this particular post) on the Chum. We will continue to encourage creative and witty discussion and stay behind the scenes - but let this serve as a warning. The Chum Nation is officially empowered to flog any and all commenters that insist on coming to the party with weak sauce, elementary banter.
Let the floggings commence. Proceed at your own risk.
