Apparently there are two of us. Kentuckytroutbum and Kytroutbum are not the same person. IS THIS SOME SINISTER PLOT TO REPLACE ME? IS SOMEONE TRYING TO STEAL CREDIT FOR MY "SAGEly" WISDOM?(:>)

KENTUCKYTROUTBUM- please change your handle. I've been posting and involved in flyswaps on NUMEROUS BOARDS as the "Kytroutbum" since I suggested to Al Gore that we invent the internet to share fishing and tying info. Seriously, on the Flyfisherman.com board a few years ago they had some issues and major problems with two similar names.

I'm trying to play nicely.Policeperson Paula. I've carried that handle for MANY YEARS, numerous forums and been addressed both ways since the only good forum around was at Flyfisherman.com. Even though my registration date was March of '06, I believe I predate this board to LRO's initial board was originated and should have priority. I believe you could alter that enough to prevent any confusion as to the initiator of postings.

Kytroutbum, there are no board rules about such a thing. If kentuckytroutbum wants to change his user name, I can certainly help him do that, but I cannot force him to do so.

You all, why don't you just email me, my address is below.

I would like to change my handle to THEKyTroutBum.

Is there a form I need to fill out :confused:

I thought about going to Kentucky once. Does that count?

I was just setting here thinking to myself, what if a female from KY liked to trout fish, would it still be proper for her to call herself KYtroutbum? Is bum solely masculine, or can it also be feminine? Just wondering:biggrin:

Absolutely that counts, I drove through the State once or twice? What about me?

Definitely unisex. Our guide this year on the Missouri told us some stories of female trout bums ... Did I mention I want to quit my job, go to guide school and become a full-time Missouri River guide. :biggrin:


My vote: Take the handles away from both of them. I'm 99.9% sure they aren't "real" trout bums anyway.

KY Trout Bums:

One of you can change your name to Bluegrass Fish Vagabond. Or Hilltopper Herring Hobo. Or how about Homeless Lexington Angler? Shiftless Char Chaser? Louisville Trout Tramp? Kan-tuck Flyfish Nomad?
Any of these working?

I thank the feminine version would be troutbummett. Kind of like Smurfett.

After much thought and spectulation, I am still amazed at my "nicely worded request" was drawing so much interest and valuable feedback. I am wondering if I was out of line? I hope not. Or is the cause of all the spectulations and suggestions either:1) ASTRONOMICAL- the current close proximity currently of the Moon, Jupiter and Venus. (The bright starlike things up "thar" when you'll go out to howl.) or is it? 2) FUSTRATION due to the failure to find the channel that carried the reruns of the Jerry Springer Show?

In a more serious vain, if you got time to play on the net, please pull up the site I copied from FOAL and send some Christmas Greetings to our Troops overseas. A former neighbor and along with several of my former students have been deployed and have gone through some rough times. Somehow the fact we are still fighting two wars has gone on the back burner in the news.

Just go by your real name and end the confusion if it is that big of a deal. If you were more or less joking then I guess it doesn't matter. Personally, I like Bluegrass Fish Vagabond. Might be a good name for my bluegrass band if I start pickin' again.

Kytroutbum,
Thanks for the site link. i followed your lead and sent a card. We owe these
folks more than can be repaid.

On the other subject I thank it is tied to the Moon, Jupiter and Venus and an
opportunity for light hearted jest.

Merry Christmas to all and as Lefty says " All THE BEST".

I "survived" 33 years of Middle School (and would do it again if I were younger-my mentality shows) so I know how to take things! The "Troutbum" actually was assigned to me as an STI (grade/ attendance program) access password from my reading John Gierach during SSR time. The "reading police"walked around making sure every staff member was reading also as an example for the kids. When registering for Flyfisherman.com, "Troutbum" had all ready been taken, so I modified it. I spent a lot of time the last few years of my career, online during my lunch period regaining my sanity, until some staff got carried away ruining a good thing.

One question- How do you have time to post during the day and at this season? (:>)

The magic word is "Survive"

Hey! I know what you can do. You can change your name like Prince did to some sort of symbol. You can be the troutbum formally know as Kytroutbum.:biggrin:

Great(?) minds must think alike, I've actually had that one in the works. I've been extremely busy(should be tying now) and haven't had enough time to devote to "creative development" of that concept. A degree of creativity and forethought DEFINITELY needs to be injected somewhere to uplift the intellectual level this thread. As my colleagues (spelling off) use to say "it took me to age 55 to get "booted" out of Middle School". Suffering from 34 years of brain atrophy last night's post was a real strain.

By the way, what time are the "Springer" reruns?

I can spell Kentucky. Do I qualify for a bum badge? :smile:

To qualify you must send me $100 cash to join the "Jerry Springer 2012" presidental campaign, then I'll in return mail send you the 5 page application and "the magic decoder ring".

In a couple of more years somebody can have the name of The Principal.
At that time I will be in the Troutbum mode.
