Just a quick note to thank Juro for inviting me to participate in this years conclave. Both Juro and Al were terrific anglers to have on my boat...

For those of you that missed the conclave-- we made arrangements to have a film crew along... click on this link to see what you missed, as Al and Juro brought in the exotics.

BTW it was great meeting some of the other forum members.

Ruben -

It was a privilege to have your keen knowledge of exotics on the tunoid task force. I was lucky to kick off my clave experience on the deck of your able craft, in fact what a kick to hook up on the first cast at the edge of the rip, fight it - have it come unbuttoned then have another blast it before I could get it back to the boat! I never hooked so many exotics in one trip, although those macks sure wreaked havoc with my standard shank hooks and lack of wire.

I remember when TerryW, Josko, and your boat were in a triangle in the west corner and Tim Watts was off to the side. Green meanies strafed the hole and Tim had a momentary hookup, suddenly a pod erupted right between our boats. I was amazed how fast you got your fly in the sweet spot of the pod and hooked one up.

I wish I had more time to fish with you, but that's definitely in the cards (I hope). Thanks for your contributions to FlyTalk and I look forward to more adventures with you in the future!

best regards,

For some reason I can't get the windows media clip to play... anyone else?

Me neither. I'm running Win 98 and the clip tries to launch mplayer2.exe. Nothing happens??

I tried not getting exited when that EXOTIC fish came into my boat, but Juro couldn't get the tag on it quick enough. Poor Al sitting on the chair looking over the fish :)

Seriously, I had a great time-- thanks to all for the positive comments.

Great fishing to ya...
