  1. That last photo, just sweet. Heretical to be sure, somewhere, someone's rigging the pillory, but damn. Ya can't argue with a picture, worth a thousand words.
  2. I'm sorry, I was going to let this go, but Bill you have shown your true colors. Unfortunately you represent the worst of what America can be. Arrogant with no reason, disrespectful, and no manners. Of course everyone knows history, but only a scrub rubs it in peoples faces. I was going to stay polite but you ventured into the territory, as one American to another, shut the eff up you moron, you do nothing but represent the worst of what American has come to accept as normal behavior. It's now plainly unfortunate that you chose to come back here and post. Good luck with your lame A$$ youtube channel and you social media adventures. Unfortunately as they say, "truth will out"
  3. Lovely, thank you for sharing. The berries and fly on the rod catch my eye.
  4. Bill I second the comments of congratulations and welcome backs, it's been a while and as a 20 year Brooklyn resident I always followed your posts. I also thinks it's fair to say that we can safely assume taking an animal evolved to live in a neutral buoyancy medium and suspending it's full weight by it's jaws is not a good thing. Considering you are moving in the social media world where optics is everything, it might be something to think about. This in no way takes away from your achievement of catching said animal, great catches to be sure. Good to see you back posting again here. I look forward to more. O
  5. You noticed he recommended a floating line. . . Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?
  6. Well welcome to the nuts club, I love a big surf. Wetsuit yet? Where are you fishing? Sounds like you are certainly on the right track, it's just practice now. . .
  7. I find that for rocky situations such as the boulder fields and jetty/inlet situations you have to think smaller. I'll work with a shorter cast, and try to work pockets. You may have to pull a perfectly good cast and retrieve to avoid getting your line fouled on the rocks. Sometimes you have to roll cast over two or three lines of white water in quick succession to get a cast where you want it. It's really more like stream fishing to me, focus on smaller areas to cover at a time breaking the beach up into little sections to work. It certainly isn't like estuary fishing where you can get a nice long cast and beautiful drift, it's way more work, but can be worth the rewards.
  8. Congratulations are in order. . . but you're still ugly.
  9. Ughh, can't wait for the epoxy river/ocean table craze to fade away into oblivion. Sure they look good when they are new, if you like plastic and wood, but I want to see some of them after 4 or 5 years when the resin is scratched and faded and messed up from harsh chemical cleaners and UV damage. And I don't believe they have any decent UV protectant no matter what they say, take marine varnish, packed with UV inhibitors, but you still have to re do the top two coats every year, because of UV damage. . . Sorry, the mixing of plastic and wood is a particular peeve of mine.
  10. You can do that, I would also take several tiles from different boxes and measure the tiles from corner to corner to see if they are “square”. There can be variations in dimension which you need to think about as you lay your field.
  11. My only thought is 1/8 grout line seems small for that size tile. If the client wants dead straight grout lines I'd check and make sure your tiles are square before you start setting. Small variations in tile dimension with that size tile don't leave much room for correction with such a small line.
  12. If you were to tell us what brand and how big it actually is, we could help you more. "it is a bit small" doesn't mean anything to us. You could be 7'8" tall and consider a 30 liter pack small.
  13. Nail on the head!! look back through the pages on this forum, probably one in 30 posts is an actual trip report about catching fish.
