Quick Tips

How we should act to other users...

Uploaded on May 29, 2009

How many of you have worked hard on making a fly, animal mount, or anything else, and when you post the pic on this site, someone decides to say "You didn't make that", or some other rude comment? Well, if you go into my user file and look at the pic of my hand made crawfish fly, you will see that some kid named "BamaBoneCollector" is ragging on me and saying that I couldn't have made that. As some of you may know, my flys are supposedly very well made, and have even been featured in this sites "Honest Angler" blog.

(Here is the link...http://www.fieldandstream.com/blogs/how-fish/2009/02/cermele-reader-made-blogger-approved)

Now, I think whenever you see such a pic on this site, you should act as if you were talking to a southern elder, and be polite, like "Wow, nice flys" or "Wow, I wish I could tie some of those", and no matter what you think, say somthing nice or say nothing at all, as the old saying goes...

Who is with me?

The world would be a better place if we did. By the way I AM a southern elder. Your parents should be proud of the way that you carry yourself.

By the way I just saw the fly "in question". And I've got to tell you son. THAT IS SOME D@#* FINE WORK ! ! !
I would'nt worry about some "wantabe" that has to "crack" on someone just to make himself feel better about his own inadequacy(lack of skill). I stand corrected. Your parents should be D%$# proud of your skill and integrity. D%#@ PROUD !

I've got a coouple of questions for you young man.
I'm not a "big time" fly fisherman(I try, but ...)
Can you throw one of those "crawdads" with an ultra-light rig?
What would one of these "bad boys" run(cost)?

from Alex Pernice th... wrote 4 years 46 weeks ago

Yea, depending on how much weight I put in it, and usually I sell them for 2 or 3 bucks each, but I really stopped selling my gear, too many people complaining about the way there made, and thus I cut most of my auctions on E-Bay and really only sell them locally.

As a common courtesy rule, if I don't know enough about the subject or the person concerned, I will at least give them the benefit of the doubt. In that case I will at the most, as you suggest, say nothing.

They're cute!

Welcome to the real world Sir!

I just love those kind of folks, they rate others ability to their own. Their ignorance becomes the stumbling block for others. Majority of people live in a box and stuck on stupid watching CNN to get their feelings, marching orders and what to say and do. I don’t live in a box and I wouldn’t let any of this get under your skin.

I will leave you with this -Alan Ashley-Pitt said it best
“The man who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The man who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been.”

And now my own before parting

being alone on a mountain ridge, setting on a giant rock overlooking the endless landscape where perhaps no man ever walked.
To watch a snow flurry on a far mountain ridge and feel the Lord setting next to me enjoying what God has made.
I may have come home empty handed,
but my mind is full of awesome memories
it is a experience, I'll never forget!

But the most memorable days of hunting and fishing, and just hanging out with was with my Father!

The truth of the matter is you will never know!

Alex,

Nice flies! Great work. You are a truly talented young man with a keen understanding of what it means to be a gentleman. Keep up the good work.

I've had my share of abusive responses on this site. You will find during the course of your life that there are people who will belittle you as a way to make up for their own short comings, especially if they feel challenged by your ability or knowledge. Such comment only amounts to the idle casting of stones. A craftsman is typically his own worst critic, that is the way it should be. That is what gives you the drive to do better and truly become a master of your craft.

Don't let negative comments from those who are envious of your talent ruin your day or discourage you from your craft. Sour grapes never make a good wine!

All I can say is you do some great work, very realistic and it shows that you take pride in your work.

I am a graphic artist and painter, I have designed my own lures as well and people will always try and make a negative comment if they really like it, but are too selfish to compliment your work.

Take the negative as a positive, in most cases they really like the work, but they don't want to say it.

Kinda like when you are younger and you find a girl you like, most of the time you act like a jerk until you mature a bit and learn how to talk to women.

All of us who enter these gates have something in common...an appreciation for wildlife, hunting, fishing, target-shooting. I'm disappointed by those who don't exercise courtesy and mutual respect. There's not an individual, man or woman, on these forums from whom I can't learn something, and I won't learn it unless they write it. For those who find it difficult to admit that others have skills or experiences worth reading about, they've come here with the wrong attitude. I have noticed that some with a negative attitude don't last long because their input is ignored or they receive enough negative feedback to feel unwelcomed. That's not a footprint I'd want to leave.

that is an AMAZING crawfish fly. i don't have the talent for it myself, i'm still tryin but my hands are to shaky for small work. would it be possible for me to buy some of those from you? i know you said you don't really sell them anymore but i know they would pound the smallmouth in montana and i'll even pay you double for them.

and to comment on your original post, i think some people are just jealous of what they never could do or be and they are negative to other people about it. i have met alot of people like that in the past couple years. they get mad at things that they can't do, and instead of approaching from a learning standpoint and tryin to get help or guidance they are just jerks about it then never get anywhere with it. i look at your crawfish fly and think "that is somethin i will never be able to create, but thank god someone can because that is gonna make some guys some very happy anglers and bring smiles to alot of faces".

If we treated each other like we want to be treated then maybe the gun laws would't be such an issue, but that is another subject. Maybe we should treat others like we would treat our grandmother, as you said with manners and respect. Glad to see there are many others out there with this same view!

First of all you said the key word, "KID"!
I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. These kids don’t know Snit from Shinola!

May I add to Sir Edward J. Palumbo, we have a verity of individuals with knowledge, talents and the ability to do things that sound impossible to do. They compare their inadequate, lack of education and ignorance in the subject at hand to use themselves as the model to judge others.
