I notice that the target fish listed are Striped Knife Fish and Carp. I am trying to imagine a conversation between my grandfather and me, were he to return from the great beyond"

"What kind of pole you got there, Boy?"

"It's a Mugan Shiipou Ishidai, Grandpa."

"What you have to pay for something like that, Boy? It looks like a piece of shit to me."

"Well actually, Grandpa, it set me back just short of eleven thousand dollars."

"Great God Almighty, son! It must be made out of gold."

"It is Grandpa. It actually is."

"What you hoping to catch with such as that?"

"Carp, Grandpa."

"Oh."

Doug: I actulaly do drift back around here every once in a while hoping to see my hero Gunsmoke in action. Haven't seen anything since last Christmas and it frankly has me concerned. I worry that he might have run into an unreasonable husband from his college days--or won a case of whiskey from MrBill and took a bet he couldn't drink it all in one night--or got a bad batch of...but you get the picture.

But I do appreciate your mentioning me in the same paragraph with the great one--it's like comparing a newspaper hack to William Shakespeare.

How is that new boat doing?
