Speaking of Classic Tarpon…

Couldn’t resist, mate.

Oh, love the tunes.

Most Interesting Fridays…

Wow, is it friday again? Been slacking, I guess, but the calendar says it’s time again for something interesting.

All he ever has to say is, “Fish, right there”
and his clients know exactly what he means.

The last time he had to pay for his own drink
was during the Reagan administration…
hey, it happens.

He secretes a pheramone that tames even the wildest creature to his touch,
but he never uses it on fish.
What would be the fun in that?

He is: the most interesting guide in the world.

“I don’t always get to fish myself but when I do, I prefer bonefish.
Stay salty my friends.”

The Most Interesting Guide in the World

The Most Interesting Man in the World

"Stay salty, my friends."

He’s never been to Vagas,
he takes Vagas with him.

He’s been known to forget he has a job…
because he was out fishing.

When questioned about his tactics
people often find him unintelligible.

He is… the most interesting guide in the world.

“I don’t always get to fish myself, but when I do I prefer bonefish.
Stay salty, my friends.”

Coconuts… or just plain nuts.

Dude, that is a lot of work for a few swallows of water. How did these two clowns even get their hands on those coconuts? Buy them? …and did he just ask for a straw? Clearly these guys needed to watch this first: Way more work, but at least it’s manly.

Ok, here’s the proper way to crack a coconut… in case anyone’s interested. First, if you just want the water, green coconuts are the best. Of course, these are usually still in the trees, so someone must get them. You can try throwing rocks or poking at them with your fly rod, maybe you’ll knock one down. Personally, I try to find a short coconut tree. Then climb it (or better yet, bet a buddy a couple cold-ones that he can’t climb it) and twist or cut a couple down.

Good, now all you need is a big rock. Place it on the ground and bang the bottom of the nut hard on the rock. Hopefully this will crack the soft kernel. This isn’t nearly as hard as Hanks makes it look in Castaway. Young coconuts are soft and crack easily. Let the water drain into a cup or drink straight from the source (like we used to do on hot summer days while cleaning fish on the shores with my grandfather).

If you can only get ripe coconuts — which are grayish-brown and often looked dried out — then the job gets a little harder and hardly worth it if you have bottled water on hand.

Stay nutty, my friends.
