Are you a fly angler?
If not...why are you here?
If so then go back to the front door and read the sign and introduce yourself proper in the foyer.
See...it appears to us that you think highly of your photog skills and want to promote yourself.
We are not interested in your photog skills at this point and certainly not your self-promotion. We are interested in whether you are a degenerate with fly skills and a personality with propensity toward getting shit faced in the woods as opposed to Ballroom dancing.
Kinda rude is all, and a few hours reading the shit on here won't give you an idea of what this is.
If you're not into fur and feathers then for the most part you won't like this place.
When you say that you spent a week reading etc. there is a huge sign out front for newbs to read. If you read that then your comprehension suks.
Behind all our shit you will meet some very talented and successful photographers , writers, business folk and idiots all drinking from the same swill they just don't stand up and say "hey look at me" until they earn their stripes.
Their skills bubble to the top sooner or later. No rush.
You show up with your tag and skills and ask us "if we have any questions"
Somebody's gonna shit on me for pointing this out for you but you seem like a reasonable fuktard and I like macro photog. Especially of bugs that fish eat.
Anyway the guys will eat you for breakfast till you get it. Step back don't keep posting and shooting your mouth off. You might have a chance for redemption. Or not....
I think these guys gave Warhol the boot years back. Good luck
giver her a bowl of chicken soup…Blumpkin
We have an easygoing and demotivated freemarket type of uslessness here...JhnnyThndr
