Re: List fishing licenses

Re: Who Wears A Vest?

I'll wear a vest under my sport coat on special occasions only. I prefer a nice patterned front and a silk or satin black back...Then on to some avocado toast and a good beard trimming.. ;)

I went to point mountain...good fishing and the dead raccoon that floated by my leg scared the bejeezus outta me.
How did you prepare it that night?
Chilled and soaked in Musconetcong broth, with a side of rusty spinner sauce. (we froze some last hatch.)
