Impossible is Nothing

They said it couldn’t be done.

They said it was impossible.

They called me crazy… or worse.

“You need bait” they said.


I had something they lacked…  I had belief.

I knew it could be done.

I knew it was possible.

In fact, I knew it was inevitable.

Once I had focused in on the task it was going to make it happen.  There was no doubt.

OK… maybe it wasn’t the best fish of the trip, but I am the only FIBFester that caught one!  Hand-lined that mo-fo!  Yeah!

Thankfully, I still had a few #8’s on my box from the last trip.  No way those fish could fit a #6 in their mouths.

  1. You are my hero!

    Heading to Andros South next week. Interested in knowing the top three flies of your group. That way I can cull the 1200 I’ve already tied to a more manageable number!

    Hmmmm… Top three… I don’t know that we compared notes like that. For me, the reverese gothcha rubber-legs was good. #2-4. Some pink accents, some orange accents and some just tan.

  3. What fly did you use?

    Orange, bunny gotcha in a #8… smallest thing I had.

  5. Thanks.
