  2. Nice read. Keep it coming.

  3. Dude, Hilarious. Simply falling over laughing here... well, not actually falling over, or even laughing out loud, but still damned funny stuff! Was just going through my old comments on my blog and clicking the name/links and realized I've never visited before. Wow.

    Anyways, what do you say to a link exchange: more readers for both, and from different sides of the halocline too.

    Keep up the good work.

  4. You're right, bobbers are the devil - I'm not sure why either, lol. Great blog, BTW. Let's exchange links. I already added you to my blog roll at: http://www.anglerwise.com/ Looking forward to new posts.
