    this makes as much sense as wearing one wading boot.....so we on NEFF give the fish a break on opening day, but the rest of the angling world goes out and thumps them on the head with rooster tails and 5 ozs of lead with 20 salmon eggs strung under a meal worm with a red wiggler tied to the hook eye....how do the fish or the stream get a "rest"?

    If I could have typed it with stick men drawings so you could understand it, I would have. I mean close the stream down for a period of time so that..... Aww never mind.

    I was a little worried about this one. The thought of you posting a photo of yourself standing in the river knee high with nothing on, playing with your ugly stick.
