    But to address the opening comment, I still call b.s. on the yellowtail tuna. The OP has only provided proof of a PICTURE of a yellowtail tuna, and not provided proof of the much-discussed, but never proven, questionable existence of the ellusive yellowtail tuna. Such proof would be: an actual specimen (live or dead).

    You all need to get out more. Snipe are real and there are lots in the US as well. I have hunted them many times. Not much meat on them but they are a challenge to hit. Much like a wood cock.

    Now can someone tell me where I can get 50' of waterline and a left handed smoke bender?

    Hmm, Jactpot?

    Those are located in the miscellaneous section, along with the henway and the much sought after skyhook. Take a look at Bed, Bath and Beyond, try the Beyond Department.

    I've shot a few myself while jump shooting ducks in marshes. They hold tight and squeak when they bust out.
    Yellowtail tuna are still on my wish list

    Are you calling me a liar sir?

    For the record, I'm not much of a kidder. I wish I were, but it just isn't in me. You won't find me yanking anyone's chain...unless they are a truly close friend, and even then, I'm not very good at it.

    The Snipe story is true, whether you believe it or not.

    I was special ops...we were on a classified mission. I was a long gun specialist and we responded to assist Charlie Company, who had been overrun by snipe. My job was to snipe snipe.
