I for one, can't understand why anyone would frequent that site, much less confuse it with anything to do with fly fishing. The only positive thing I could say about it is that its gone from truly offensive to merely inane. Not that I ever visit that site, which I don't.

Really - why do we care?!? The Drake is a great, unique magazine, but that board doesn't seem to have any connection to it.

that site is really sucking it up big time lately. It used to be okay, no FAOL by any means, but now? It doesn't even pretend to be about fly fishing.

I have to hand it to the Drake - is there any more bizarre, less predictable drama unfolding anywhere in the online fishing world?!? An apparent takeover/coordinated counterinsurgency by a core group of senior god only knows what end? It's like watching a train wreck in slow motion. I think even most of the Drakian regulars have been stunned into silence.

It's either brilliant, or the next level of maturbatory stupidity, but it beats the lates news from 2 years ago on MidCurrent.

The Walrus was a member of The Beatles. When Paul McCartney died, The Walrus took his spot, according to the song, Glass Onion. The band later wrote a song called I Am The Walrus. It included the Colbert - sponsored line: "I am the walrus, Goo goo ga truth!"

What a bunch of boot heel detrius on that site. I will smote the owner about the haunches with an Orvis Limited Edition Bamboo 7wt if I ever catch up with him. The posters are juvenile deliquents who bring great shame on our noble tradition. The gentlemen at the club would gasp out loud if they saw that online brothel.

At least with the walrus posts, you have a better idea what the threads are about.

I spent an hour there and woke up disoriented, with the coppery taste of blood in my mouth. My wife guesses it was a walrus-induced epileptic fit. Bit my tongue and banged my head pretty good, but I can still type. I won't be back.

Whew - it looks like things are getting back to normal over there. I noticed that the old regulars are posting fish-related posts again. Let's hope that's the end of that weirdness.

I'm dissapponted in that board - it used to be cool but is now incoherent bullsh**t.

The magazone sucks though 0 I don;t know why anyone would like it - really - it sucks.

the magazine sucks because it doesn't have corporate sponsored gear reviews, puts on 10,000 watt blast your favorite stream or because your sense of humor is sitting in a jar, right next to your nutz on your wife's nightstand?
