I have crabs...........and Redfish are the only cure.

 

I figured with that topic, Mikechell will see that and respond first.

 

OK the Redfish are in the creeks. I need to get down to Charleston area to fish them. They love crabs this time of the year. Work has been crazy, I need some time to regroup.

I have tied up a few penny sized crustaceans to beat the water with.

Give a man a fish and you'll feed him for the day; Teach a man to tie flies and he'll pick up all the roadkill.

Hey troutguy great crabs... how do you itch them though without sticking yourself on the hooks?! O.o

I think it's in the wrong place though. Is this a swap?

And you're correct, Troutguy.

If you stay on fresh water, you can avoid that problem.  

Saltwater guys are the main reason fro the spread of most STDs, or so I've heard.

So now we are lamenting because those little beauties weren't in  the swap.

That is those of us who did get in the crab swap.
