On Fake Fish and Fake ...

By Tim Romano & Kirk Deeter

Given the fact that almost every behemoth trout reported, photographed, or otherwise posted on the Internet triggers an upwelling of emotional responses (some downright disturbing) on the “real-ness” and viability of farm-raised, planted salmonids, I felt a holy obligation to meditate on the issue and weigh in with an opinion.

So yesterday (after we stocked the river) I waded into the current, sat on a boulder, and thought.  And thought.  Then drank a beer, squinted my eyes, pursed my lips, and thought harder.  In a moment of rare subconscious enlightenment, the answer seeped into my mind like a purple blob dropping through a lava lamp.  Two words: breast implants

Granted … they’re not real.  But they’re definitely not a foul.  There’s something to be said for aesthetic appeal.  Otherwise, there wouldn’t be droves of middle-aged men lining up and shelling out the dough for the opportunity to have their photographs taken in close proximity to them. 

Stocked trout, that is.

They both cost money to hold, some travel just to hold big ones,and like you said they, trigger great emotional responses!

Silicone has more uses than what most of us think it is only for, although we are happy with the primary scenery. The fly fishing world is starting to venture into the use.There are gooey nymphs, there is soft skin, and the ever so popular scud backing which appears to be on its way out as technology advances the use of silicone with special colored scud back materials.Maybe we can chalk up the old implants with the old scud back material. Enjoy the weekend and see you guys next week.

Wow. You may want to touch on some of the floatation advantages offered via silicone.My deep thought from this last weekend goes something like this:It's a fine line between fishing and swimming. And beer is usually involved in crossing it.The good news is that my rig is incredibly easy to get in and out of, and the gear seems to fall towards the center.There's nothing like a couple twelve year old canoeists snickering, "Man overboard" to put in perspective.I was running it pretty loose on a hot day and "product testing". Now I have my results.

You deserve to be put into the Hall of Fame of Writers Analogies after the FFlogger comment today...Admit it - you were cooler fishing again and I am pissed because you did not invite me... I need a day of that...Secondly - You have been in the water too much and thinking of having a roll in the hay but the only thing you can get close enough too is a large trout flopping on the ground as your lovely wife wants no part of your stinking butt...That is what should have been posted instead of comparing stocked trout to fake boobs... The bottom line is that both are great to look it... I guess a picture is worth a 1,000 words is somewhat true...1. iCAST Showbabes - Nice2. Large ass trout picture hanging in the office - NiceBoth are nice to admire, but at times they are not so nice to touch, not that I have ever touched implants before. It is all from what I hear.
