Here Fishey Fishey Fishey

ok, so this post has nothing to do with photography, but sometimes you just need to give a shout-out, you know? My friend, Mr. Robert Moore, is in the middle of an amazing experience. Robert is fishing the Quiznos Mad Fin Shark Tournament down in the Keys right now.

What is this tournament? Taken from the Mad Fin site:
Quiznos Madfin Shark Series, the award-winning program on ESPN2, is the most dangerous catch and release, light tackle, shark fishing series on television. This is what happens when the ocean’s most fearsome predators come face to face against the world’s smartest.

I live in a world of fishing…not by choice mind you, but nonetheless, I am surrounded by it by marriage. I have a gynormous Tarpon mount hanging in my house. Seriously. I have no tolerance for fishing shows. They are so boring. and long. and boring. BUT….the Mad Fin series? It is a whole new species people! This show is amazing, and keeps even me interested. *and not only interested, but usually hanging off the edge of my seat because it is so dramatic. And though I am biased and happen to think the best part of the show is when they are showing Robert and his fishing partner, Mike. They are fun. They are clowns. And sometimes…they almost fall off their boat : )
Oh, and it is catch and release. Gotta love catch and release…the only way to fish!

So there it is, a quick shout-out to my friend. I am so proud of him and his partner! This tournament is invitational only, it has been going for three years, and Robert has been invited all three years! That is something to be very proud of.

So my dear readers, send positive, happy fishey thoughts to my friends! It is windy windy windy right now, so the fishing is challenging, to say the least! Happy Fishey Thoughts!!! As Robert would say, Tight Lines!
