Somebody suggested this might have been the inspiration for Stephen King's book "Stand by Me"...I doubt it. Others said we looked like fly fishing riff raff.....I can accept that.

I didn't know Juan Luis Pedro Felipo de Huevos Epstein was a fly fisherman.

Which guy was in the middle of the Chinese finger trap?

You can really see the resemblance when you zoom in a little...

OK, fair enough. I say stay there but don't ever post here ever again as no one will ever care for your pic or story. You're not welcome until you do a proper intro. That should be clear enough for you. Now, do the right thing. It's still your call. :coffee

I'd be glad to make a proper intro, but missed the rules section when I first posted....if you would point it out to me perhaps I will intro myself........based upon the derisive insults coming from people on this board, I will pass on the intro...see you later..... All I wanted to do was post a photo of three friends fly fishing on the St John River back in 1997.....it was a great trip.....we had a great time...the fishing was poor.....like I said....see ya.
