You are the real deal Tony! Next time you tell me to try that 10x tippet of yours and tie on a size 26 midge and get my ass in the river...I'll be listening sir!

I'd hassle you about that Vinnie Barbarino hair style in that second picture, but I'm afraid someone would dredge up an old hippie pic of me, or one from, heaven forbid, the 70's! :)

Great pics!

Huh?
All men who fish may in turn be divided into two parts: those who fish for trout and those who don't. Trout fishermen are a race apart: they are a dedicated crew- indolent, improvident, and quietly mad.

Tony, sounds like a challenge.

Why not? Giant channel cats eat them and they are about as predatory as they come. I've seen 30 lb striped bass in the middle of the ocean slurping down larval crabs that were about 1/4" big. Doing exactly what that guy in that link describes. If the protein is there and it requires little effort to consume it, seems like an easy meal to me.
