    OOHHH, and the guides of the future will be former NBA stars that didn't understand what "investment" meant and blew through their money like Darryl Strawberry blew threw a pound of coke.

    Okay, I'm done now...I think....

    Nick, we have got to get this for our beach fight club show down! We can launch fish at the plane as it's coming in! (clipped resident coho, of course) :D

    Can we see if the Pike Place fish catchers can catch one out of this cannon?

    Scarface in Pike Place screaming "catch these fish motherfuckers!!!"

    Two thoughts:
    1. Can they put a GoPro on one of the fish?
    2. Can I PLEASE try to target one in the air with an indicator?

    Indicators in flying-fish fly fishing are called 'tracers'

    Meanwhile, traditionalists will shrug and harumph and continue to point to their 20+foot cane spey rods.

    Sorry to rain on your picnic people, but it will only be minutes before some gen. Y fly fishing punk gets the product in his metrosexual hair disaster messed up by a flying fish and the lawyers come out to play...

    Gen Y'ers can't afford lawyers. We'd occupy the fish cannon, but that's ok because nothing would come of it. The real threat comes from old farts getting walloped by fish and breaking a hip or losing their dentures or something. Then we'll see some litigation!

    Am I the only one that's just plain fed-up with how frequently these threads quickly have politics injected into them?
