So...There I wuzz...
A hugh full moon lightin' up the sky...being chased away by brilliant sun rise...The last 3 hours of the drop and I've got the place to myself!
What's that strange tugging sensation?! Looks like a Striped Bass only smaller...
Welcome Mr Twinky...Let me take that deceiver out of you mouth!
Go tell your friends its's time to play...and thanks for making my fleece gloves smell like the "reel thing"...

Gentlemen...Start your engines!...

I overslept and missed the best part of the drop such as it was. When I met up with Pete, first thing he say's is "smell my hand, the skunks off". "That's ok, I believe ya".

Woulda been a great day to fish the late afternoon drop but had to pick up "my wife's new yak". We stopped in at EMS in Hyaniss on the way down and after looking around homed in on the WS Pamilico. Ran into Pete and he voiced his approval. Not being quick to part with a buck I decided to sleep on it. Went back Saturday and bought one, with Pete there to provide motivation to the cheapskate who goes into a catatonic state whenever I spend money. Could'nt let the 20% discount slide by.

Nice job Fred.

Outfit the Mrs. with a lite SW spinning rod & a few sluggos and I bet you have a seasons pass and a lifetimes paddling buddy.
