Fredward Davidoff the 3rd. I like long walks on the beach.

MIND FISHING

Mind surfing, a term that describes the process of imaging a surfer (normally yourself) on a wave. It could be a real wave, a picture, video. Skaters often mind skate too; curbs, rails, gaps - Andre van Wyk is currently doing a lot of this... Andre, mind posing at the CPS conclave thingy (?) [...]

SEEING DOUBLE???

In Oman I finally pinned a Two Bar Seabream. They'd been frustrating me here in Qatar; I'd seen them but hadn't been able to convert the few chances I had had. They're a fickle bunch; Ray Montoya said to me that they had considered them impossible on fly until a few years ago. Turns out, [...]

THE MALIPUTO

Freshwater GTs? Juvis? No, fully grown! This was end of what sounded like a florally ludicrous conversation between two chaps I was fishing with. It was a long time ago, the fishing was good that day so I never again considered the statement. Until recently that is, when a friend sent me a video clip [...]
