This is the pair of fins I have been waiting for... Now I will no longer be plagued by blisters at the tops of my toes from fins that do not fit like a glove (right size, but non-accomodating to two toes on each of my feet - extended use would result in spots rubbed raw on my second and third toes, just behind the nails).

http://www.grindtv.com/outdoor/blog/34277/monster+white+sturgeon+weighing+1100+pounds+caught+in+canada/ Estimated 1100 pound White Sturgeon from the Frasier River. It's understandable that the IGFA would want records measured on a certified scale, but as the concept of catch and release grows, there's got to be a way to acknowledge this type of accomplishment (maybe there is and I just have to read up on it)

When we walked down to the dock, we saw a bunch of fish cruising around the structure - they were pretty shallow and were swimming in sizable schools. The kids cast flies at the end of their spinning rods baited up with hot dog (they call this the combo and while they have bait in the water, my flies don't get the time of day). They pulled in several and had a good time.

Check out the tiger striping on this Bluegill! While everyone else was SUPing, Marlon and I went fishing. I loaded up a new G Gnat and the big Bluegills delivered!!! Rises, takes and hook sets one after the other - each as exciting as a bonefish following a bitter (almost, at least I keep telling myself that) - I pulled up over 30 today. It's easy to like catching bluegills on the fly when they are cooperative - enjoy where you are! None of the fish today made the Daiwa Soyokaze sing - there's always tomorrow.

Although it may have a similar shape to a fluke (the fish), this paipo's performance is the opposite - and consistent with yesterday's awesomeness. Same surf spot, much hotter temps and a smaller swell, but still the same stoke! The waist high break could have been 6' Laniakea because I had the same amount of fun. Conclusion after two days of surfing - the paipo is pure awesomeness and a board to behold!!!
