    Great report Bob, perhaps one day i join you on your trip. I understand this guys who make a 1000mile drive to fish floridas waters. I also make a 11 hour flight, one or two times a year, to reach your coasts and relaxing while fishing. Countdown started: -3.5 weeks! :smiley-cool

    What brand and weight braid do you use

    I use the Power Pro 15# in yellow. I like the high visibility and had never a problem with it.

    Hi CodyIn effect, we have probalby one of the best health care system in the world. It works realy good. And i know, that in USA the health care cost are very high. Because we have to make a supplementary health care cost insurance for traveling in the USA.

    Thanks folksThis is an interesting discussion about rules and regulations and there are many pro and contras. Every country has his own interests.But one swiss regulation make fishing realy unpopular:Since 2009 C & R is prohibited by law.That sucks. Because i keep just what we can eat on the same day. So a good fishing trip can end in just one hour or end up in a unnecessary overkill :-(I'm not a biologist or something similar and dont know all the pro and contras. I try to respect the rules in every country.I am happy to be able to visit your country and relax while fishing. :-)
