He is a big, stocky dude.. his upper body muscles were all twitching and shit by the time he got that damn thing to the boat, when he was done my wife handed him a beer and he sat it down and opened a water. :lol:

Kinda like reeling in a semi truck tire full of concrete.

Yes, you can. I have never had it myself. I told him he would need a lot of help getting it in the boat because I would be fighting him to keep it out. :lol:

I need to take my young boys out fishing.
I wanted to this year but I was so busy working to earn the $ to pay the bills, fixing cars, and commuting.

Its almost winter here in IL now.
Must do it spring 2017 .

Here's hoping Trump can get the economy moving again so it will be easier to earn the scratch.

I wish to fly fishing. Haven't tried it yet.

That's the holy grail. I had a friend that used to tie his own flies and loved every minute of it. I haven't tried it myself...I'm too old to learn any new skills.
