WAF actually stands for Wife Approval Factor, which is why you may sometimes see GAF (Girlfriend Approval Factor), and maybe even BAF...but I haven't seen this one yet.

WTG = Way to go
OTD = out the door
BTDT = been there done that

ISTM = I'm sure there's more!
A Nor Cal Kayak Assassin. Yeah, "Welcome to the Madness" - Now brandish a weapon or get dropped to the canvas.

More on WAF here: http://www.norcalkayakanglers.com/index.php?page=13

Also, I like to think of it as Wife Approved Fishing myself.  But my account is long gone, so don't really have any input here  :smt003

Found a nice thread on this page here: http://www.getbentsportfishing.com/forum/open-forum/23576-acronyms-fishing-lingo.html
