News item; Seems a couple of Floridian fellows were having a heated disscusion and a having consumed too much hooch it turned ugly! One of them went home and grabbed his stuffed swordfish off the wall and returned to the scene of the disscussion and proceded to stab his drinking companion with the fish! It wwas reported that the impalee was recovering from the wound . No mention of the hangovers.
I'll bet they were disscussing the merits of "Indicator Fly Fishing" as we all can attest thats the easiest way to start a fight known to man.

Nah couldn't have been "Indicator fly fishing" maybe using the San Juan worm or glue eggs as flies though, or the merits of digital river web cams and map technology, etc.. :devil: :devil:

Tragic, but hilarious.

I guess, as 007 would say, he got the point...

....or maybe one of them changed the color of the crystal flash in the others favorite fly pattern and named it for himself? How about one of them was writing a "River Journal" of the others favorite river (aka, Frank Amato's team of writers), Oh man, I could go on and on.... but why?
