    LDR'd, unfortunately.

    But it was damn fun to have one on, feel that familiar thump as you're stripping in line, and frantically try to clear line as it takes it's first run.

    Sort of hunkered down after the initial run and led me back and forth for a few minutes before becoming unbuttoned very unceremoniously right near shore. Pretty sure it was a pink--which was a first for me.

    Felt good!

    Nice. I'm spending today restocking fly boxes, cleaning gear, and generally getting ready for the beach.

    Nice to hear. I've been out twice and have only had few bites. Can you give us a general location? I don't want you to give up you secret spot just wondering where they starting to show up.
