I am a Master Bug Chucker

I’m usually pretty humble, out of necessity.  After all, one does not title their blog “The Unaccomplished Angler” if they plan to boast of their keen angling prowess, that’s for sure. However, I recently achieved an honor that I must brag blatantly about: I am a Master Bug Chucker.

It’s true, and I have the award, signed by Lefty Crayfish, to show for it:

No, I am not perfect, and there is always room for improvement. But I’m pretty proud of my achievement to date.  I vow to not grow complacent in my mastery; I’ll keep at it, chuckin’ bugs in quest of a flawless score and avoiding the skunk.

If you have an iPad, you’ll soon be able to test your skills as well. Stay tuned.

Coming soon to an App Store near you.

    You are truly talented, Kirk. Can’t wait to try my luck. Congrats!

    1. Kirk Werner says:

      I think it has less to do with talent and more to do with determination, Mike. I got skunked several times before digging in and sticking with it through boisterous skunks and splattered bugs. Thanks for the good word, friend!

    Waiting with baited hook bated breath.

      That’s a clever play on words, Pat. You must be one of those writer types 😉

  3. Jay says:

    Cool. Makes me wish I had an I-phone.

    1. Kirk Werner says:

      Not to worry, Jay– it won’t be for iPhone (at least not initially), just for iPad. So you don’t have to rush out and spend $199 on an iPhone 😉

    looking forward to it…i just got one of them “i” thing-a-ma-jigees…

    …glad all that hard work paid off for you!

    1. Kirk Werner says:

      Thanks, Sanders. I remains to be seen whether or not all the hard work will pay off. Time will tell, and if you get one of them iPad thingamajoggers, the app is free.

    I will get an I-phone for this reason alone! :) Nice work!

    1. Kirk Werner says:

      If you get an iPhone, you will be disappointed :) It’s for iPAD.

    Kirk, I am very interested to see what you have come up with! Love the artwork!

    1. Kirk Werner says:

      Thanks, David. It’s actually more than just a game. The game was an afterthought to an app adaptation of my kid’s books. Here’s the full scoop, if interested: http://olivethewoollybugger.com/app/

        I’ll pass it along! How did I miss this stuff?

        1. Kirk Werner says:

          Thanks! I guess I’ve just been too subtle in my noise-making to date 😉

  7. Chris Hunt says:

    You don’t need an app to tell you that! I knew when you humped it into the Firehole in a blizzard, my friend…

    1. Kirk Werner says:

      Well, while I appreciate the sentiment, Chris, I must say that only now do I feel validated.

  8. cofisher says:

    I knew you were a chucker of some kind. Congrats!

    1. Kirk Werner says:

      I’ve chucked many things and up-chucked many times; this is the best of all chucking. Thanks, Howard. I think…
