7 years ago I am out front washing my boat when this guy walks up and introduces himself as my new neighbor (Tony). Tony asked if I fly fished. I replied "nope", as I was thinking "fly guy, you can just stay on your own side of the street!". It didn't take my new friend "Buzo" long to drag me to the dark side. We have spent thpousands of hours chasing stripers on the Feather, Sac and the delta. We have been to New Orleans together and next month will heading off to LaPaz for the fifth time. He has become a great friend. When he told me the story of a client losing a rod he was sick. He said you and Rich were great guys to have in the boat, and could drop a clouser within an inch of he bank every cast. When we headed out fishing a few days later I reverted back to my gear days, grabbing my bait caster and a salmon jig. I told Tony, if we don't hook it in two casts we will be here for hours. We hooked the line on the second cast. I was impresssed on how Tony was able put me right on top of the rod.
Glad I could help.
