Earlier in the week, I posted an invitation for my readers to submit their own writing, updates, and photographs to be considered for publication on The Rusty Spinner. The first gentleman to do so is Ruhan Neethling of Papua New Guinea. He sent the pictures you'll see below. For those of you who might not know, the fish is a golden dorado, which is a species renowned for its appetite and attitude. Ruhan writes that he caught these fish in Bolivia, and that they'll smack anything "big and ugly."
So raise your glasses; a toast to my man, Ruhan. He's proof that fly fishing pervades language, nationality and heritage, and that the internet has made the world a much smaller place.
