BIG GEET GOTTA EAT!

The real story behind that giant trevally footage

Unless you've been living under a triggerfish for the past few months, you're likely one of the millions of viewers who've watched those incredible teasers of bird-eating giant trevally in the Seychelles, which hit the Interwebs on Oct. 26. The footage was captured by a four-person crew from the BBC's Natural History Unit during fall of 2015 and fall of 2016, as part of the group's four-year production of Blue Planet II—the much anticipated sequel to its 2001 Emmy-winning original.

God promised Noah that He'd never again destroy every living creature on earth by a flood, and God put rainbows in the sky as a sign of this promise. (Genesis 9, Chapter 10, verses 9-13). But God never said He wouldn't have Mother Nature occasionally kick us in the crotch as a reminder of what we're doing to our planet. And the winds began to blow.

Schoolies beware.

Seasons of the striper

It starts in early Spring when the water is cold and flinty, the wind an unceasing bully. Sure, there may be a schoolie here or there, a member of the Hudson River group that's opted out of the migration. But the great fish are still south. I don't care, though. I just need to reacquaint myself with everything, to feel the bend, to shoot the line through the guides, to smell the brine, to hear the surf's hiss. This trip just gets me one step closer to the real thing.

Modern love and flyfishing

Instead of dick pics, I send my girlfriend pictures of myself, naked, holding fish over my junk. Sometimes they're full-body shots. Other times they're close ups of just the fish covering my frank and beans, with a halo of manicured pubic hair surrounding it. #hottie #instawizard.

Better to be good than lucky

I'd never been to Guanaja, Honduras, but I did my research and learned that we'd have our own little island surrounded by permit flats. I was even told of permit before breakfast—almost as great as waking up in that special way.
