    No big deal. It was a stocked 16" slab that migrated down from an upstream pool. I may not have killed a wild fish.

    Will post pics later from my Miami trip.

    Two Mangrove Snappers, a really nice Jack, and three tarpon hooked and another three coming up to my fly (two on the same cast). Those guys were everywhere but because I've never fished tarpon I didn't know how to fight and keep them on the line. Oh well, you gotta learn at some point.

    Also, fishing in Everglades National Park is a phenomenal experience. It really makes you appreciate how utterly crazy the early settlers of Florida were. The water is no good, the land is no good, the bugs are non-stop, you have massive thunderstorms all the time (in fact we were coming back and had a thunderstorm hit our area--as a worrier that was not so fun).

    Really a wonderful spot of the Earth and I hope to come back down again soon.

    I believe I posted that when it first came out, but yes, it's a touching article.

    Mate you probably did and that's where I probably first read it. I saved it in my bookmarks and I go back and read it once a year or so as although it's a sad end to a troubled life it's still quite an entertaining read the way he lived his life.

    Simply joining the gathering. Enthusiastic fly fisher albeit, ordinarily, haven't gotten sufficiently out as of late because of children. I have a place in the Catskills and am enthusiastically anticipating opening day. Where's your home?
