  1. I guess I'm glad I got Magda in my ads.
  2. I ***ched about three adds on the same page the first day. Today I got 5 adds at the same time, it's so bad they are overlaying each other.
  3. I like the upgrade so far. Three ads at a time including a strip right in the center of the screen that I can only sometimes close.

    Reminds me of the Ugly Betty story. This is from the Mako Fly Reels web site. UGLY BETTY This is a story from Jake Jordan, a long-time Mako client and noted big blue water fisherman. Many years ago, a charter captain fishing out of North Carolina purchased a Mako 9550 reel. Most of his fishing charters consisted of chasing albacore tuna on fly off of the coast near Cape Lookout Shoal, ideal for the 9550. One day, a client was fishing with this new Mako 9550. An albacore tuna had an aggressive take on his fly, and as the fisherman was not prepared, the albacore pulled the rod and reel right out of his hands – rod and reel sinking to the bottom of the ocean. It was not to be saved by the captain nor client. The rod and reel sat on the seabed until a deep sea treasure diver exploring the area found the Mako reel 12 months later. The brand new Sage rod was gone, and the reel was covered with barnacles. It looked like a softball with a piece of green string (the line) hanging from it. The treasure diver cleaned up the reel with a pressure washer and subsequently sold the reel to Jake Jordan, a local charter captain. Jake bought the reel from the diver, and sent it back to the Mako factory to check out. Upon receipt and inspection of the reel, the only repair required was a new wooden handle. The only other wear on the reel was in the black dye in the anodized topcoat, but there was no corrosion to the reel at all. It was functioning perfectly. To date, Jake has caught more than 2,000 sailfish, 1,000 tarpon, 1,000 albacore and 50 marlin on this 9550. It still is one of his day-to-day fly reels. He named it Ugly Betty.
  5. Had to do some driving for work today and the trip took my by one of my favorite rivers. Two for four on a quick hit.
  6. Got a chance to flex a new, cheap, glass rod today. River stockies seem to like it.
  7. Had a doctors appointment last week and stopped at a spot on the way back. Got a bunch of bows, no surprise, then got this. Browns have not been stocked at this location this year, maybe it was mixed in the batch or maybe a holdover.
  8. I caught one in February. No problem boating or handling, I lipped it without any excitement. Very good eating, better than the grouper and snapper we had.
  9. I agree, good pair of hiking or work boots have served me well forever. No need for Korkers or spikes for me.
  10. Wooden shampoo for everyone!
  11. Little bit of a surprise after tugging on typical stockies.
