Pete, the sand in the shoes can be iliminated by using light neoprene socks with a bit of duck tape, or as Terry does, a pair of Cabelas neoprene socks that have a built in gator. I had a tough time...

I'd not care to fight that tuna on my finger with 20 pound test, but if he had a weak link in the rig it would have been better perhaps. The only way we saved his finger was by grabbing the line and...

It has the Florida boaters all upset, but should not be of any concern to bonefishermen. Can buy all the conch you can eat for a couple bucks a pound.

I totally agree. The IGFA specs are a waste of my time and do not add to the enjoyment, though they may for some folks. For big fish, as long as I have a bit of line or a knot that tests out lower...

No trouble (doing as you are thinking) in the past. The airline does not check what is in your carry on, TSA does.
