If so, where does this put the Grandspey and XLT?

Am I the only one to see this or did I miss something here?
You are not alone in noticing the typo.

And as to where the XLT & Grand Spey fit in, the important thing I think, is consistancy.
I applaud everyone who had even a minute part in bringing this about.
It may not be the perfect answer, but at least they are trying. And it is a big step in the right direction.
I fish because the voices in my head tell me to
