Please use your real name when registering. See the first item under forum rules.

"In the interest of transparency we use our real names here. Also if you are connected to the tackle business in any way, that affiliation should be so stated on every post."

Hi Poppy! Do you mean for user names or just when filling out the registration info? I hope I didn't already screw up..

Howdy,
We are wanting everyone to use their real names so everyone knows who is saying what. It isn't a big deal to change it later if you want. No one is going to kick you off right now. Tell Andrew I said Hi when you see him. Take care, Poppy

Sorry, but it didn't say to do that in the registration instructions and I didn't see this thread before I registered. I have a feeling most everyone will automatically just register with their old forum handle out of habit.

Hi Jim, 
It is the very first item in the rules that we all agree to when we register. I quote.

"In the interest of transparency we use our real names here. Also if you are connected to the tackle business in any way, that affiliation should be so stated on every post."

Thanks Jamey!

I think most people are so used to not reading attached rules/instructions on internet sites (we've all done this a hundred times already, what could be new, right?) that we just assume there's nothing there but the standard stuff that isn't any different from any other site. My bad, I made that assumption.

Same here, we'll figure it out.

Here's the deal with using our real names. The way I envision this whole deal is that it is no different then if we all were sitting in my living room or sitting around in the pasture (which many of you have) and talking about this stuff. We don't use "user" names there so why should we use them here.

We are all supposed to be friends or at least acquaintances that share a common love for silvery bright fish that go to sea and comeback to start another generation, classic winches and flies, great angling literature, and a beautiful style of casting done in many beautiful places around the world. Lets treat each other like friends and use our real names just as we would with friends.
