Paul & I chased several schools of these fish from a 12' punt for weeks to perfect the technique. We caught many fish up to 17lb on tippets down to 6lb. Paul took the cover photo with a borrowed a 2 1/4" square camera. This took an hour to set up. In the meantime the tide had gone out and I had to simulate wavelets with buckets of water.

That's nostalgia for you! A really nice picture, actually. I gather that you didn't take it yourself, Dave?
