Flyfishing Valedictions – Lame or Witty


Most email signatures these days contain Cheers, Thanks, Take Care, Best or something similar.  However some in the flyfishing community choose to use things like ‘Tight Lines.’  I personally don’t like witty email signatures because I think most of them are lame and leave a bad impression.  In our office, it’s well known my feelings toward these email signature tid-bits.  So much so, coworkers will sometimes send me internal documents with said valedictions attached just to rile me up.


Well I’m ready to face my frustration.  I’m asking you to help come up with as many flyfishing related valedictions as you can.  Let’s get them all out there.  Drop them as comments here on the blog or on our FB page.  When we’ve exhausted our list, I’ll either dislike them more or possibly accept their witty humor.


Our office staff will vote on the best one and the winner will get some form of Idylwilde SWAG.  To sweeten the pot, which ever one we deem the best will become part of my email signature for a full week afterwards.


Bent Rods,
