    Striper fishin' with Mal.

    So, I first met Mal in the pitch black darkness, in a parking lot, near the ocean. I did this after teaching teenage kids for several years to never ever go and meet some random guy you met on-line for any reason... needless to say, it all worked out fine, but my nieces kicked the chit out of me after my wife dropped that bomb. Mal is a (most generous) fishing force to be reckoned with, so just do it anyways! Thanks much Mal for all the time you have given me!

    Proper care of fly lines for wintah.

    Jeez, I gotta do this big-time this wintah! It felt like I was throwing a slinky out there last Spring. Mal, what do you use to wash the lines with?

    I am a big fan of the brown spectrum of lenses, and not just to throw a wrench out there on this topic. Brown and green lenses reduce the blue color spectrum, of which the water and sky is in your face while fishing. I started out with USAF Rayban G15 green, then the G15 or G34 brown lenses and I now use Berkely browns (with readers) and they are the best for me on the water. My caveat is I only see with one eye, which is very light sensitive, and which needs to be protected all the time. So, geeky clear safety glasses at night and nerdy polarized yellows for rainy days. Best thing would be to try before you buy, hand over your drivers license and walk around a parking lot on a bright sunny day looking into windshield relections, with whatever glasses you think might work for you.

    Yup, start with a clothes basket but move to a 5 gal bucket. The bucket will make you focus more on dropping your strips in a tighter pattern, and pulling your line out for casting with double hauling. Then when you move to a waist-held stripping basket it will be way way easier to manage your line.
