Thank you, David. You might think I am used to compliments but not so. I can never hear it too much. Woolner used to say that he "guards his compliments like an unwed mother." I feel the same.

You may think that I easily hand out a complements but this is not the case - only when I honestly feel there are deserved.

This last, most recent issue is the only one I did not have a story in since I started with SJ a year ago. Looks like you can pretty much expect a Mister Smarty article every issue. Unless I get caught up with by a jealous husband.

Hi all, A late reply, but its not over because Mrs. Oregnio my 5th grade teacher is still not singing. I read the SL and love it. Zeno has made me laugh several times in the last few days. Stuck at the house all winter taking care of my 4 legged best friend Angus -my fading Saint Bernard. And yes, he is a saint because he loves an old salt, face sand blasted, SOB like me. He was diagnosed with kidney failure a year ago to the month and is still here with me. I took him off the vet meds as soon as he told me his demise were due to the strong arthritis meds he was on. Long story short, I put him on a strict diet of good ocean fish every night with his kibbles - freezer striper ranout 6 months ago but he still loves his tuna, mahi, grouper, and salmon. I know $$$ but my kids have been grown and gone for a few years now. A year later I?m 3 seasons beind getting back to my childhood haunts of Ocean County and fishing the salt, sand, and surf for stirpers. Well, from this far from home, if there are a handleful of guys putting things out there that keeps a landlocked surf fisherman like myself daydreaming about my next striper adventure._._._.good._.._.no._._ great for them. Too many adds?, not free?, look in that plug bag ._._you didn?t get those nice,worn, sharp hooked plugs for free or without influence, did you? Anyway, thats the most I?ve said in 5 years. Thanks to all that keep me learning, peace, keep at least the beaches clean, and tightlines to to all._._. especially you nightwatchmen of the Atlantic.

I do enjoy reading SWJ because simply it is dedicated to surfcasters and written by some writers who really seem to know the game. I know sometimes it is written more toward Long Island fishing but lots of the basics will apply to most regions and styles. I do like the fact that they discuss 4w mobile type fishing. I live on the cape and of course it is a lost "art". Do not have a problem with all the ads as long as the content stays informative and a enjoy to read.

Thank you for putting up that post. I think the previous post was sort of left field which, in that case at least, was impossible for me to respond.

Recent posts were not germaine to the on-line publication "Surfcasters Journal". However, Sandflea you are welcome to post. Try to come close to the subject at hand. Either that, or start a new thread. We need the action.

Rob, What did you think of the article? Did you like the character development of Sylvia? "That ***ing Dayno. I don't trust that sonofabitch. I got a bad feeling about him."

Loved it! Had a great visual based on your description and believe I've met her in the flesh (or perhaps her daughter)

Apart from Sylvia, while I never experienced both the sense of wonder nor the exact sense of loss you did, I am at the stage where I miss certain experiences, really wonderful experiences, of yesteryear. So much packed into a short story!
