What's the deal with snook? I just don't get it.

Uhh. Print out? Why not use a smartphone with GPS and google maps?
On my android phone at least I can tell Google Maps to cache a fairly large area, so there is no need for data connectivity, and...

Yeah, maybe they don't go the extra mile, which is a shame since their reels are not bad... It really doesn't take much to (underpromise and) over-deliver, and that makes such a big difference. I...

Have had a few that looks very similar, does the job, but don't fit well and are (or feels) heavy. The flat sole is the main issue. It does however look as if they could fit my feet fairly well, but...

I don't see unrestricted travel to Cuba to immediately follow these rather small policy changes. It's only a slight ease of restrictions for Cuban-Americans who already are allowed quite a bit more...

I don't suppose there's a way to see the preliminary proposal? Perhaps I'm assuming too much, maybe Bahamian laws of this nature don't come with public hearings and documentation.

It will of...

I've tried this a few times, without success. As soon as the bone has the fly line and 50 meter backing out there, it's too heavy of a load to drag for a bone, especially while changing direction...

Seriously? For bonefish?

I've never had a bone run further than 100 yards. Yes, no trophy sized one (yet!), but I would have thought 150yards would be plenty even for a 15 pounder, as the 7-8...
