Introducing The Troutrageous! Fishing Blogger Pro Staff

I will never be a respected enough fisherman to be named to a "Pro Staff" of a fishing company or brand.  I'm cool with that.  I'm lucky if I fish a handful of times a month, and that honor should be reserved for somebody of some sort of accomplishment...like Lefty Kreh, KVD, or the Old Man and the Sea, not a hack fishing blogger.  That said, it doesn't mean I can't assemble my own Troutrageous! Fishing Blogger Pro Staff...

So what exactly qualifies someone to be a member of the Troutrageous! Fishing Blogger Pro Staff? 
Allow me to clarify that for you. 

1)  You have to be a fishing blogger (of a blog I actually read)  
2)  I need to have met you in person at least once
3)  You never agreed to be a member and are likely on this list against your will
     (I look forward to the impending legal action)

So without further adieu, I introduce the Troutrageous! Fishing Blogger Pro Staff...

The "Perkiomen Punisher" spares no smallie, sunfish, or bluegill

Tyer of flies, mixer of beats, drinker of beers, caller of bullshit

Too nice to leave off the list.  He also seems to have an "in" with the man upstairs...

The Fantastic Four had the Invisible Woman, The Avengers had Black Widow...
every motley crew of dudes needs a female on board for counterbalance. 

The picture that started it all, the bromance continues...

Art & poetry bitches! Who says we ain't a cultured bunch?  Just ignore the phobia of snakes

Plain and simple, nobody outfishes da Jersey Boyz.

No caption needed

and last but not least...

Always the first to "Like" a Troutrageous! Facebook post, a titan of tenkara & toy cameras

What exactly does this mean?
Beats me, but if you'd like to hire any of them for an upcoming birthday party or bar mitzvah, just let me know...

  1. Hey I think you assembled a great team..even if you did have to take them hostage to get it accomplished ;)

  2. What an honor! And to say I have even met or fished with a a few of this elite group too..
    I am also delighted to see that Utah is well represented by myself at the River Damsel, another great honor to represent the Troutrageous Nation with her.
    So does this mean that there will some kind of Troutrageous corporate retreat or something in the new Troutrageous World HQ? I have yet to visit FLA...
    When I posted this on Facebook, I even liked my own post!

    1. Fear not Tom. This will be an annual thing. And bribery doesn't hurt either.

  4. Glad to hear my $200 check and bag of pork rinds made it safe and sound. I asked you not to use that photo of me back when I was fat. Now that I'm enormous it just brings back those old, skinny feelings again. I know RD got in legitimately, but tell the truth - every brat pack needs a fat kid. Fist bump for cookies.

    1. Cookies. It all comes back to cookies.

    2. And I didn't even have to bribe him with my cookies... Maybe it was because I fell victim to that speed trap! =(

  7. If I take a picture of my legs with a T! sticker in the bathtub, maybe I'll get picked up by Simms.

    1. Make sure your legs are clean shaven and toenails painted...which shouldn't be a stretch for you...and I think you're on to something...

  8. Just don't know what to say...just when you think you've made it, there's something like this. I'm not sure what I did to deserve it. I'm sorry you had to lower the bar so far...and I have to be careful about what pictures I post to G+ in the future, I didn't even know anybody paid attention to those.

    1. Just keep drawing those tenkara robots and we'll be all good. BTW, no picture is safe on the interwebs.

  9. Anthony, Mike didn't lower the bar, it fell to the ground on it's own and for once I wasn't lying underneath it. Great idea Mike. I think we'll start calling you the Unaccomplished Troutrageous!

    1. I have a hard time typing when I'm sooo excited! Haha. Thanks, Mike, for the honor. A T! Pro Staff hat would be way cool. Accomplishment? Well... I guess that I have fished in over 50 rivers in 4 yrs. and have only fallen into half of them!! Ha. And people thought "Incoming!" was was my battle cry for catching a fish... =)

  12. My favorite part of this whole blog post is that it all started from a running string of not-so-nice text messages.

  13. Since my lawyer said there's nothing I can do, I'm honored to be a member of the Troutrageous! Fishing Blogger Pro Staff.
