I would love to do an oversand trip as the season fades. The last time that you took me out there was the highlight of the season for me - in terms of the overall appeal of one outing. The blitz action that my brother, Roop and I enjoyed a few weeks back certainly wins out on the adrenaline front but if you integrate the curve of pure satisfaction then that day on Nauset wins out.
I am not sure when you are heading oversand but keep us in mind when you are heading out on Nauset in the late September and early October time frame. I appreciate the offer.

That sounds like a sound suggestion, therefore SaltRon takes the Old School award for one fly line of choice up to a $50 value!
Round of virtual applause for out friend from British Columbia!
Ron - email me with your snail mail and line choice, CONGRATS!
Special thanks to Capt.Konrad Gesner of the Massachusetts south shore for the use of the "family heirloom" photo.
Mike - close one, as usual I admire your sportsmanship in the hair-splitting results. I'd love if you and your clan could join me for a fall sortie out on Nauset this fall before the snow flies.

|Nick||I vote that its a tie, since saltRon probably divided 52 by 2.2lbs/kg thus giving 23.63...kg. So, maybe time responded to the question as the tie breaker?|

Whoa, I guessed 1952 and 52 pounds. Saltron guessed 1952 and 23.6363 kg * 2.2 lb/kg = 51.99986 lbs. So, significant figures included, SaltRon wins. That was close...
Wow...I hadn't seen the posts on the second page when I wrote this. If we are splitting hairs a kilogram = 2.2046226 lb so 23.6363 kg * 2.2046226 lb/kg = 52.10912 lbs.
Who knows...if I am the winner then I donate my proceeds to the Forum. The contest really should not come down to significant figures.
Awesome fish though...

rumblin, fumblin, stumblin
I couldn't find the string this morning to enter. But Damn old doogue was awful close even though he's one # over I'd give it to him.

SaltRon entered 23.6363 KG...
454g = 1lb, thus 23.6363 KG = 52.06 lbs...
Doogue entered 52 lbs, both same year...
Doogue wins by a MERE .06233 lbs? ? ?
I am thinking this is too close to call, let's take a vote - sudden death challenge -or- hairline trigger?

I get the same result = spread of a mere 1 point! Doogue - great job.
Let me know what flyline you're in need of, and congrats!
|09-06-2001 07:23 PM|
|Nick||Looks to me like Mike Doogue wins!|
|09-06-2001 07:17 PM|
So howz this for a method of determining the winner...
delta / years + delta / pounds = total point spread
lowest point spread wins the fly line?

Capt.Gesner was not to disappoint.... he was out chasing albies all day, and just called to set things straight:
Vanna, the envelope please...
Official estimate from the Gesner clan:
51 pounds, 1952 - the location... NAUSET INLET!!
OK - winner claim your prize... (I'm lookin back as we speak)

|juro||I am expecting a phone call from his son, Capt. Konrad Gesner, anytime now. I honestly don't know myself... asked him to call me with the answer today. I left a message on his answering machine this morning as a reminder, I'll bet he's out fishing.|
