Striblue tries to keep his flygear as a rip trip striper tries to relieve him of it.

All on a dog day July afternoon on an un-named beach on an uninhabited island in a favorite place to be.

Must be a great time out there, anytime. How big was the fish, John?

Is that a $60 Abel barb crimper holstered on the belt of his designer fishin shorts?

Yes. Fred..good of you to have noticed.... but it is the Camo... and goes well with the shorts....don't you think:D

Wow! You know something's pulling REALLY hard when you get the bend right down to the handle like that. Is that a 9wt or a 10wt?

10 wt...and atleast a 33 incher..maybe more.... but the rip was pulling also.....

That rip was a hoot!
Johnny Scissorhandz quickly had his way with the beast then set her free...and then he graciously gave up his special "spot"...
What'a guy!
