Hey, what are you using for bait overthere, Sterling? Is trolling allowed on the List? Are the "fish" biteing this time of year?? I hear one gets best results if you chum the water first with early Super Record rear derailliers, womans' Brooks and Ideale saddles, and sparkely shiney rolls of handelbar tape. If you aren't using tandem gauge brake cables, you run the risk of loosing them before you get them into the boat. Just a few tips for ya from an old pro, Sterling! Last one I caught by dangleing the rear seat of a tandem in front of one.

Seriously folks, next time we need to get together earlier and spend a longer time socializing. Staring at bikes ten deep isn't quite as much fun as getting up close. Just something to put into the hamper for next time.
