Arm Wrestling Caption Contest: Winner Announced

By Kirk Deeter

Now, nobody thought I really lost, did you? I'm not saying either way.  This shot was taken when I was up in Juneau, Alaska, with Hal Herring.

While that might have been all fun and games for me, Hal has produced some eloquent work on the real issue at hand: protecting the wild fisheries in the Tongass National Forest. If you haven't checked that out, I urge you to do so. 

My personal favorite caption came from buckhunter, who wrote: "Tired of beating Michigan 10 years in a row, Ohio State sends in the cheerleaders." 

Reading that one was like watching Braxton Miller dash untouched through the Wolverine secondary—it hurt, but all I could do was nod my head in awe. Doesn't matter, buckhunter, you're still not getting the line, because that's kind of an inside joke. Home field advantage.

Instead, I will reward the RIO Gold fly line to FlyBorchetti, who penned: "Last piece of pie (at) dinner:  Northern girl: Let's get two forks and split it; Southern girl: Darlin' you don't really want that pie, do you?  Alaskan girl: Wrestle you for it." 

There's definitely some truth in that. FlyBorchetti, e-mail me at editor@anglingtrade.com, and I'll get you the line.

Man, I'm glad I left the table before that match was finished. Otherwise I'd have to tell 'em who was the mighty victor.... or ah, victoress.

Buckhunter- Man, that hurts, and it was only 7 of the last 8. I remember watching the #1 vs #2 ame in 2006 while stationed in Baghdad, probably the greatest college game of all time.

Dcast, We'll have plenty of time to revel in our victory's this Fall.

Lost, Thank you for your service. Baghdad in 2006 was not a very friendly place. Wasn't the battle of Sdar in 2006?

Yes. The greatest college game of all-time. I was on a flight to Las Vegas and missed 1/2 of it. I will not point any fingers but my wife planned the trip.
