    I would have went with this adjective:

    idiotic

    play adjective id·i·ot·ic \ˌi-dē-ˈä-tik\
    Definition of idiotic

    Popularity: Bottom 40% of words


    • 1 : characterized by idiocy
    • 2 : showing complete lack of thought or common sense : foolish


      6 of one, half dozen of the other, no?

    thanks, my bad.....

    That is confusion of the past tense with the past participle, and it's unfortunately really common in the US.
    My guess it's because the speaker is interpreting "should have" as a particle indicating expedience and trying to combine it with the past indicative.

    Re: Some recent flies from the vise

    Everyone on this site is much more shallow than you give them credit for. THouse was asking for the recipe for the fly in the picture that was just a hook and a bead, LU's remark was that THouse did not have the skills to tie a fly with only a hook and a bead. Just more of the sophomoric humor that IS this site.
    Oh no, I'm well aware of the sophomoric personalities on this web site. There are also quite a few major ball busters, monumentally large egos, and a preponderance of back biting, arguing, foul language, and other shenanigans going on.

    I used to visit, and contribute more often, but after seeing most threads and posts had absolutely nothing to do with fly fishing I stopped visiting the site a couple of years ago. I came back recently and see nothing has really changed.

    Fly fisher for fifty-five years and still loving it!

    You couldn't be more accurate in your assessment. Although I am hoping that you stick around long enough to post some of your outings this spring so that there might be something that is actually interesting to read.
