October Slab of the Month - Pacu

Our friend Dave McCoy hoists one of the most unusual entires we've seen in the history of S.O.M. Dave landed this Pacu on a recent trip to Bolivia where he also chased the more traditional angling targets.

Pacu, along with their piranha cousins are a characin fish, meaning a kind of tetra.

Nada Knot

A Hemingway parody by Ed Gilbreth in the Post and Courier inspired Hemingway's nephew to write in and share a parody he wrote called the Nada Knot.

He was a young man. He had gone twelve years without catching a fish on the fly. He had never fished with the fly. Now he had to face the knot of the fly. He had never done the knot. The old man always tied the knot. He wished the old man were here but he was not.

"Fish," he said, "you are a friend of the old man and he kills you. It is love, this killing. I cannot knot. If you cannot knot, you cannot truly kill your love."
