If you just found this forum, Welcome to the Fiberglass Flyrodders! We are glad to make your acquaintance.

If you have an old fly rod and you wish to research about it, feel free. You may read and search the forum as much as you like. Searching the forum is easiest by using Google or Bing and adding the phrase site:fiberglassflyrodders.com/forum/ to the end of your search.

If you wish to join the forum to post and use the forum features, you must register for an account. The account is free, however you must agree to be a civilized forum member as outlined on the Registration Form. If you agree, click on the I agree to these terms box on the form.

On the next page, please enter a Username, your e-mail address (twice) and a password that you will remember (twice). Please do not use a password that will make your security elsewhere vulnerable. While we will keep your password a secret, any database can be broken. Pick your time zone. Then fill out the application question.

Application question hint: in the field Fiberglass Flyrodders Application: please enter at least a few sentences explaining why you wish to join. Minimal responses like "Found on Google" or "I found a fishing rod" or non-specific responses such as "I want to join a community of like minded individuals" will be deleted. Sorry. Tell us why you want to join this particular forum.

After the application question, enter the CAPTCHA code (to confirm you are not a spam bot). Finally, click Submit.

We will send an e-mail to your email address. That e-mail contains a link to the front page of the forum and a second, more complex link that is your activation code. It will look something like this:
Code:
https://fiberglassflyrodders.com/forum/ucp.php?mode=activate&u=126534&q=458RT2THBYP

Click the link and login to the forum. If everything worked, you should be able to login without any issue. If you are having a problem, please contact me at jgestar@fiberglassflyrodders.com.

There is no reason to provide any private data about yourself. None. The user profile allows you to enter information about yourself, but do not feel obliged to do so. Including a rough location may put you in contact with some nearby glass fanatics. However, it is not a requirement.

What if you see an ugly box with the weird letters? Bummer. That is the CAPTCHA. Details in the next post.

The CAPTCHA box

If you are trying to login, but instead you are looking at a red warning and this ugly box full of weird letters, you accidentally hit the CAPTCHA*. Possibly you are trying to enter an old password. However it happened, you confused our login script and now it is suspicious of your intents. It has thrown the CAPTCHA test at you to prove you are a sentient human and not a SPAM Bot. Be patient, follow the blue arrows and numbered steps to get back in.

    1) Enter your username (if you don't have a username, then you need to register instead)
    2) Enter your password (if this is your first time in, you need the temporary password I sent you)
    3) Do not check either box, if they appear
    4) Enter the 4-7 characters of weird text from the box (this example reads 4LWTL).
    5) Click Login.

If you have the correct username and password, you should get in. If not, please contact me. I can reset your password and you can start again without Mr. CAPTCHA breathing down your neck.

Tom

* We've already had hundreds of spam bot attempts to register and pollute our forum. Please be patient with the anti-spam measures.

Please send ALL login/registration/account activation issues to me at jgestar@fiberglassflyrodders.com. If you are struggling with an issue, please do not hesitate to send me an e-mail.

Old Yuku forum members: Welcome back! I'm glad you made it here!
If you had a Yuku username AND you posted on the Fiberglass Flyrodders forum then there is an account set up for you. E-mail your old user name to me at jgestar@fiberglassflyrodders.com. I will forward login information for your account. You retained your post count and status from the old forum. If you have a login problem, please send me another e-mail.
If you had a Yuku username BUT you never made posts there then you should register for a new account. Feel free to register your old Yuku username if it is not already taken.[/list]

Please have patience while I get to your request:. If you have not received a return e-mail, please look in your spam mail folder. Better still, add jgestar@fiberglassflyrodders.com to your safe senders/contacts ahead of time. If I don't return your e-mail within 48 hours, please send me another. If you have tried 2-3 times without a response, please try sending from a different e-mail account.

First Login: When you login for the first time, use the temporary password that I sent you. It would be best to change your temporary password to one you can easily remember (not the one from Yuku). Click this link and enter your e-mail address (twice) and the desired password (twice) and the temporary password (once). Click submit. Your account is temporarily deactivated until you are manually approved. The reactivation e-mail is sent every time you change your e-mail address to confirm it is correct and real. Log back in and you should be good to go. If not, please send me an e-mail and we'll get it worked out.


Tom
