T14L = (This One's For Leo.)


-Cantar, Leopoldo-

I recently videoed this kayak fishing adventure just the other day shortly after visiting Leo’s wife, Georgette, last week, & thought I'd share it for Red Sled Team, Roman, Jerry, Kev, Rick, Christan, Georgette & crew to see & hear the fun.. ZZzzZZzzzZZzz..
Words cannot even come close to expressing how deeply honored I am, to be presented a couple mementos’ from Leo’s tackle box, aka, “Tools Of The Trade”.
I will cherish these gifts and the memories they have, & will still create, all in Leo’s name.
After a decent fight & Leo’s Yellow now at color, I can see she brought up a little salad to interfere, & thankfully the second death-pass unfolded a solid shot to the inside neck preserving every steak & collar.
Heres the video below, watch in HD. I will up some stills also in a few..
Hopefully we can get Georgette to sign back in with Leos account & say hello keeping his memory alive & well!
If you don't mind, from time to time I might be dropping some adventures with Leo's gear in action.. I might even take his lures into to the Keys & beyond 'Reel' soon too..
(The photo at the end of the video was from our dinner celebration a few weeks ago to celebrate Leo’s life with some of his dear friends.)



(Coincidentally in the video below, Leo’s bucket hat was already on the table for the commemoration session. I guess that's better than a pair of speedos?! )

After Mr. Mackerel got hit at thirty mph, & seen here peering out from underneath the Mirage Drive for cover, he has that look just like the guy in Super Troopers "I'm Freaking Out Man!?"




(Its always a little comical releasing both the bait & the Yellowtail that attacked him so viciously just a minute ago.. Sometimes they get hit so hard, they go up the line unscathed..)

Thanks Wade. That is one of the best video I have seen. What a way to honor the gift your friend gave to you. By catching some beautiful yellow tails with it. Nicely done!

Let us all hope that our fallen friends can share their memories forever with the touching of one's spirit, as this man has done to you. A very special gift, the gift of stories told, and passed on to others though you.

I can only hope after I am gone that I receive the same degree of reverence Leo's departure has shown here! the measure of a good man and a full life!
