Was a time when the kayak fishing community was smaller and tighter, but a tragedy such as this brings out our collective sadness and shared feelings of sorrow. Kind of you, John, to take a moment...

2) Would that the practice of LJ kayak fisherfolk (be they young or not-so-young) posting relevant/recent info. here would become the norm again.

3) Muchas gracias...

One didn't need to be part of the "old guard" to know Rod, although many of us have had the true pleasure for years (15 in my case). I won't run through the history or tell tales of great times and...
