    I've got very few strokes as it is. No need to shave any here.

    Nick, you should try a mankini, for a couple of reasons. First, and I learned this on the when to wear a "white belt vs a cristiano ronaldo belt" seminar circuit, you would have caught more fish, second that seal may have been more amarous than intrusive.

    Thanks for the tip, Boot! Any suggestions on where to purchase a XXL mankini?

    Funny you should chime in, as I was thinking of you that morning.... Shortly after the seal incident I hooked, but lost a real nice jelly. You'd have been so proud.

    Heh Boot says I'll catch more fish. I like catching fish.

    Plus it would pretty well guarantee my solitude on pretty much any beach I fished.

    I did consider the solitude angle. If you can clear out PNP I will endure and continue to fish with you!

    Now that's dedication!
    I can only imagine what Herring Dan would have to say if I slid in next to him, casting and smuggling plums at the same time.

    Not on the Cedar it wouldn't. That outfit would say: "Hey Bro, I want to party with You!"

    The true dedication would be you wet-wading the PNW salt in a mankini in late September/October!!! You may never see your boys again!
