Fishing for a date?

When I started wading around in rivers, it took me two years to finally catch a trout with a fly rod. It took me 40 years to find a great woman. The time I spent on both made the journey all the sweeter and that's something people over look when they are sort of living in a cyber world. I mean a person can spend 15 minutes on this machine and have the information it took me 5 years to figure out; that's fishing and dating. It's just easier to stick your neck out without getting your head chopped off in today's system for both.

Want to find your perfect match? The search is a quick click away and custom to all your wishes Worry not if you don't have enough energy drinks in the fridge to tear yourself from the Xbox on a Friday night, you can simply turn your computer on and see lots of pretty (hopefully) faces with the same interests as you. For example, if you love finger painting on nude beaches while you wait for a Rooster fish to cast to and choke on, all you have to do is search it and you could conceivably find an unlimited supply of similar freaks to get to know. Fishy, Freaky, Smart or not its out there for you to find.

This all started when I heard a friend of ours finally found this months dream guy who happens to be an Asian fellow she met on Farmers Only. Not sure if he is a farmer, but she lives downtown.
Can't make this junk up.

I seriously had no idea there was a site specific to farmers and rancher folk finding dates. Apparently I missed all the commercials, never knew.

Porn, Kink and Swingers aside, was there really a site for everyone?
I went digging and blew my tiny little brain up.

You a Trekkie? Well beam on up Scottie and explore your own strange new world, you have lots of company. Cat lovers and Horse lovers have their own special places to find a soul mate making it easier for all the cat lady and jockey types to search without being seen. Some humans are wired to feel love through the heart, some the brain and some the stomach; so Vegans and even the Gluten Free crowd get a corner in the modern dating world. Inmates, Clowns, Vampires and Gamers all have a way to stay weird together and keep a very unique gene pool going strong as well.

And just so you believe it exists, here's the Link for details on how to become a "first mate" for a Sea Captain.

You can look up "Fat Bastards" on your own time.

Anybody can find a place where they can browse, poke and swipe people with the same interests but Fly Fisher people. I couldn't find one of those sites.

My extensive research revealed a couple of half hearted attempts at starting a fly fishing only type dating site a few years back but it only seemed to last long enough for the web master to find love, I mean someone to fish with. Of course there are a few successful stories of leaky waders, graphite and love working together to create some fly fishing power couple and there are countless examples of beautiful relationships that include spending time with each other on the water with a fly rod. I won't drop names, you know who you are.

I'm not part of a live for fishing couple, nor do I need to be, While fly fishing is obviously a huge part of our relationship, fishing together is not, which is great for not mixing up my peace and quiet time with non paid, part time guide work. Fly fishing with a full time night woman was always too complicated for me and whatever girl, especially when the tone in the boat didn't match her genetically coded lack of tolerance for the teach talk coming from her man. Kitty's great, she could care less about fishing for trout in her own world class back yard unless it is 95 degrees out. Trout even hate that.  She loves her salt water fishing though, especially if the boat captain is a little old man, she loves little old people. There's a site for that.

I found a site or two about gear fishing and one's that had fishing categories, but no where did I find a legit place for the fly fishers of the world to find their dream hole date.😁





Our sport is complicated so I could see a Fly Fishing specific dating service being really helpful.

Membership levels could run between dry fly only, dabblers, competitive, posers and true hardcore live in a van shit allowing everyone to find a match without to much tangling.

You a nymph looking for a stud fly fisherman?
Do you think there is chance you could be that unicorn? A stud and a fly fisherman?
I wish I could say we had a site for you.

Imagine being a Sage girl and you just happen to swipe by a profile of a 5th year guide with an excellent beard who owns his own boat but........he uses Orvis rods. There is no doubt in my mind, one of the most popular categories will be for industry reps and their groupies. I mean what better grab for a lady with the addiction to get good gear than to date a rep, the king of swag. Way better than a 1st year guide with a pro form.

Swinging flies with two handers has become extremely fashionable for women over the last few years and here is the perfect opportunity for these fine ladies to browse the countless dirty nymphing, one handed, hot holers, completely on the down low.

Explain to your boys that you have been getting the beat down by a stripper you met on a new dating site and watch their eyes light up. They don't need to know it has to do with streamers.

Dreams are going to come true. Flowers will bloom here. Finally a dude can finish a long day of wailing on 2 fish and come home to a chat room full of women who really know how to get it deep and handle a stiff rod. Looking for a person who spends more jingle on dead birds and hooks than groceries? You should be able to find everything you are looking for in a life partner dedicated to filling fly boxes on "Fling with a Fly Fisherman".

And Ladies, once the profile pictures of twenty or thirty desperate beards go live, you will finally be able to see that we all shop in the same place, wear baseball hats to bed, sunglasses inside and have really bad tan lines.Your willingness to look past things like these as well as the roommates, dogs, tobacco, booze, and lack of funds shows your commitment to whacking fish. You qualify for one month free.

It's a great idea, but much like my brilliant idea of double stuffing a poptart; I will most likely not see this through. Someone should. Easy mail box money for a crafty web type with tons of time to burn on Friday nights.

Spring has sprung, feels like love in the air.
That's what I got.
Book a trip.

Carry On
