Reply scott June 28, 2006 at 6:22 am Wait a minute, are you trying to tell us that you caught a giant fish but then got held up at gunpoint/camera-point by one of the roving photo-gangtas of the Berkshires? Wow. That happened to me once. It makes for quite the fish story. Hello, Neil. Reply V-Grrrl June 28, 2006 at 6:27 am All you need is a slice of lemon–for your bellybutton.

Reply Neil June 28, 2006 at 7:40 am That’s me, with my pants rolled up, standing in the middle of the rugged Green River. And the fish made an excellent dinner, especially with the almondine sauce I created from the organic vegetables and nuts I grew myself in the backyard. Reply Roberta June 28, 2006 at 7:49 am Damn.
