Can I spend other peoples money or what?

Hey Rola 76..... Today the Columbia is a piece of glass, near 80. And tomorrow, the day I was going to make my last stand for springers is forecast to westerlies 20-30, gusting to 40. Go figure! :whazzup:

Mr. fisherman did not mention a landing net BIG LONG handle one.

However, I recommend the 150 as onstep suggested, as I got a 19' NR scout with a 150 VMAX and I thought it was too much until I had the boat loaded then just right.
