WHAHOO Severn that was like a difficult mandolin solo.
I've never captured the tone and spirit of this thread like you guys.
Your station works great on the Pike but fades at Aspen.

Iceland again?

Fishin off the coast of Iceland I caught an old fish and pulled it tight against the side of the boat with a hook digging into him. He was old with flapping scales like tar paper flapping in the water. Even barnacles had glued themselves to his belly. fast closing bright red bloody gills and fluttered while I looked into his eye larger than mine as though silver foil was behind the lens. His mouth had three lines still stuck to old hooks like white whiskers that told old stories of how he broke free three times.
His eye didn't look into mine but stared at the sea.
I cut line.
Rap yelled "what happened".
I couldn't explain why I let him go.
