My nickname came about after I married my husband and ski partner, skidog. We also have our nicknames on our license plates. My signature is a comment my best ski buddy friend, Air Cher, and I used to say as we skied the Double Black Diamond runs together. We still ski them but she is in CO and I am in AK.
^^Diamonds are a girls best friend.^^
My name is derived from an extinct metal magazine that I used to read. It was the best one I'd ever read, and I've still not found a better one. And liking the name so much, i use it as my online alias for: ICQ, MMBB, EpicSki, Ebay, TGoH, BD, and anything else that i have to use a name and password for. = )
Dirtybkr comes from another forum . My wife and I are Harley enthusiasts and we used to tease each other about old stereotypes . I also race dirt bikes and that other forum is a dirt bike forum . I just use the same name and pass words so I don't forget , not as young as I used to be .
I live in Wyoming, but fish saltwater with some friends from San Diego. They used Trouthead as a put down as in "you troutheads don't know nothing about fishing for real fish". Little did they know that myself and the other Wyoming contingent liked the name. I liked it well enough to be my online name on any board I post to. I really do not even like to fish for trout any more.
I am sorry but catching one more 16 inch cut or rainbow has lost its appeal. So instead of fishing the Wyoming waters 40-50 days per season, I fish maybe 3-4. I do however fish salt water both conventional and fly about 10-15 days per year. I have enjoyed my past freshwater trout fishing, but nothing beats a 50 lb tuna except a bigger one. Now if I can manage to catcha tuna on fly gear I'll be very happy.
That all being said, a fishing buddy and I are planning an Alaska (trout/salmon) trip for early June. Do you now take back the "Meathead" remark? <FONT size="1">

The nickname goes back to when I was a bit over the line on the wild side , I guess I reminded somebody of a character named Leeroy in a movie , they even painted Leeroy on the tailgate of my truck.(Leeroy got blamed for alot of sh*t after that)
