Thanks, Conrad.* I was trying to illustrate how these birds can accept being close to humans.

Ooh boy that bird has a cat fish. Those pictorial fins are like knives.

Once caught a snake that had swallowed a small cat fish and these fins were poking out through the snakes sides.

*Thanks the funny thing was I wasn't really trying to catch a halibut. I was anchored in about 50 ft of water. just having lunch. The rod was just sitting there in a holder with an old dried out chunk of hering on the hook. I just hit the release and dropped it down 5 minuts later it was bent over almost double.

I was working on a turks head knot for my gaff and wham!!

*Totally agree.* Boating "among the mountains" is enchanting.* We're planning on our 11th and 12th passage next May via Princess.

Thanks.

*Your right, "to each his own".* But don't dismiss the Inside Passage so quickly if you havent' done it yet. I've probably done it 30 to 40 times. I never get tired of it, and I am really looking forward to doing it again in the spring.* It's hard to describe how awsome it really is and every trip is different.* Give it a try...........Arctic Traveller

RE: A new way of fishing (for me)

As opposed to the one with the fish in his mouth?* Yeah, I'm the director of the project.* So I need to look the scruffiest and nastiest of all the crew members.* Otherwise they don't pay attention to me.* It takes a lot of work every morning to achieve this look.*

Normally I Iook like this.* I'm the one on the*left.* This was taken the other month*when we were shooting down on Boeing Field with one of the 747-8 Intercontinental flight test crews.* The program's chief pilot is the fellow*in the foreground right of center and his first officer that day*is the one next to him in the funny hat (he's quite a character--- keeps talking about wanting to barrel-roll the*747-8 like Tex Johnston did way back when with the Dash-80 707 prototype).* I grow the beard and do the hair thing just*for international trips.

So that's what the initial "C" in your name stands for. You've been in the business for a long time.
