LittleMissMagic A sailboat underway seems to travel at that perfect trolling speed for fishing most of the time. If you do catch anything (I'm on a twenty year catching drought myself), you might have dinner for when you get where you are going. Besides if we sailors cared about what someone else thought we wouldn't be sailing to begin with.

xort Ask that sort of question to all the over-tatooed freaks walking the streets today!

What kind of a sailor would care?

Why would you care if it looks good. Damn! Who do you think is looking at you anyway?

It is OK on my boat ...

In fact, it was a concession I made to my wife to put rod holders on the stern rails. She is the fisherperson, not me. Using Dipsy-Divers, we troll for salmon when the winds get really light.

They're now made of fibreglass and carbon and graphite. As of the early 80's...............

Ascot?? Is that some sort of a dog??

I'm very careful in picking jobs where I don't need to wear a coat & Tie...especially the Tie.

RickLaPaz Not at all. Most sailboats look better with a couple of extra sticks poking out of them anyways.....

We actually have about 16 different outfits on ours, from easy-to-use spincasters for the kiddies to h/d Penn and Shimano conventional reels and rods, a bunch of 12-15 lb. spinning combos and 5 fly rods. Plus 3 crates of tackle. But we usually troll only one rod at a time when the sails are up, 'cuz a single hook-up can be a handfull enough, while twin strikes will drive you mad.

BTW, though I enjoy using the flyrods the most, I don't use them if we're hungry. 'Cuz I still suck at it.........
