Someday I’ll make the effort to chase the rooster.
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.
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!
Les: It is never too late to become a sand artists!
