Hey dudes and dudette- came up with a pretty gnarly name for this thread- kinda like MySpace but SaltSpace (patent is pending, bitches). I thought this would be a good thread for everyone to post their salty trip reports, tell us how you are doing, what your goals are, et cetera. We can even make this place fun and post pics of role models:

we can bash old girlfriends:

tell stories about how your grandfather got you into fly fishing:

And this thread will not judge you regardless of your color, creed, or the other ones. Except for weight- we can make fun of you if you are a lard ass. But the idea is that we at SaltSpace hope you find it here like a second home. Come in, grab an organic donut and get comfy.

I'll start off- yes, this is not the biggest tarpon but it is my first that I landed.

Maybe now would be a good time to tell you about me and how I came to be the Reef. Nah- I'll save that after I catch # 2. :cool :cool :cool

forgot to mention- Grip and Boos (nudder patent in the works) are not discouraged and are actually sometimes encouraged depending on if you look like a Witherspoon grouper or not.

And I'll add an easy to beat saltie report:

Went back to Cali for a regatta this weekend and had a couple hours Sunday morning. Hit the beach just south of Santa Cruz and arrived to head high waves but no breeze. Found some nice rips and some feesh about 20-30 feet from the dry sand. 9' 8wt with 28' of T-14, 3 feet of 10 lb izorline, 1/2 - 2lb perch, and fucking a shit load of fun.

Best part as always were the joggers......that and outfishing my buddy with spin gear launching 100' casts into the surf only to get bitten the last 20 feet...It was too funny to tell him what was up.

For the most part thats salt fishing in Ca.....but don't try and match our brackish feeshing....
