    Hey Ron,

    I was wondering if you were going to be at the M&G tomorrow. I have a sweatshirt for you. If not I can mail it to you.

  2. Welcome to my page- let's go fishing! I like just about every type of fishing, even ul spinning carp fishing which is a real blast and a "tackle buster!" catching a thirty pound carp on 4 lb test tackle is a real challenge. Same with a big King Mackerel off Hatteras or Kitty Hawk live bait fishing with light conventional 20 pound inshore tackle.
