I’m totally obsessed with Authentic Fly Fishing - after discussing the game with others, I’ve come up with theories and questions.
I’ve used spoiler tags but am trying to use clear titles so you only read something you want spoiled…
The fenced off area
This area belongs to Erica Nailer - but what’s her deal? I think she:
Did something bad (recently):Shot and killed Tortus, Anita’s dog
Knows some of the Fishers because she… used to belong to the Fly Fishing Club and is featured in the photo from 1986 of 3 people (I think they are Noah Elsworth, Harlan Waverly, and Erica Nailer) and that the missing photo is a picture of the club at her house.
Did something REALLY bad recently: Killed Jack Deacon - but I can’t recall where I found the GPS coordinates for the skeleton - is that him? Anyone know where I found those coords?
As for Anita:
I think she knows/suspects that Erica did something pretty bad (killed Tortus), but why did Harlan cover it up by cremating the dog before she saw the body, per her scrapbook? and if she knows he hid the truth, why does her note say he did a good job? Why does her note to Harlan have the ambiguity about if either of them will ever return, is it because Jack Deacon disappeared? Also, what’s up with the photo in the observatory? My theory is that Anita took it from the observatory and made up the story about putting it there to find a way to reconnect with Jack in “pulling a prank” simply as a way of reconnecting with Jack after he got mad about the scary story contest.
Where is he now?
Big spoiler: He’s the skeleton under that tarp. That’s my theory at least!
What’s his connection to the property north of the pond? I think he and Erica were lovers
and he knows she made up the Morrecht Cregg to keep people out of her property? OR he made up the Morrecht Cregg and Erica thought Tortus was it when she shot him?
Seriously, what’s up with the disc golf course? Doesn’t that seem weird? and who is going to the fire pit and hanging out considering it’s on private property? It appears that it was several years ago - 16? that Erica Nailer shut down her property, so I can’t imagine there are people having fires there still.
The Lodge: What’s up with the snake? Obviously someone is still coming out there frequently to feed it, but it’s a little on the nose, right? like, Erica is evil, she has a snake?
