  1. That's twice on this trip that you've shown the 2 styles of flipping off: other knuckles extended out past the middle finger or flush with/behind middle finger. I grew up in Washington state, where we always extended the other knuckles out front of the middle finger but when I got to college in Minnesota (um ya ya) people thought it was weird and my wife still makes fun of me for it.
    I assumed it was a west coast thing, but I would have expected it to carry over to Hawaii.
    Any rude gesture anthropologists care to comment?

    Also, the shot of the carp flying from your hand is a great one.

  2. Interesting observation. I've never noticed the "west coast" style until you mentioned it. I don't recall that style carrying over to Hawaii either.

  3. Gotta love the Hurrican High Gravity, LMFAO!!!!

  4. It was good to meet you JP and to fish with you. I'm glad you came to the PNW. Hope you make it out this way again next year.

    Mr. P.

  5. I don't get it ... Do you guys always lick your fingers in between fish - most of the pictures feature you drying them ...

    That may be why I don't catch squat.
