      It is amazing to see several large roosters surf the waves in and then travel tight( casting range) to the beach. Quite an adrenalin rush. An angler…kind of like a quarterback in football, has just several seconds to throw/cast.
      Hope your Patagonia trip went well, if you have gone already. Will check your blog for updates.

  1. Bob, I’m not a salt water angler but there’s some neat stuff here. Roosters are pretty cool looking fish. You may have missed your calling by not taking up sand art professionally!
