| "Dear Jean-Francois
Well, we knew that was going to happen didn't we? I expect that you will spend a lot of time being dragged around the lake in the float tube. Must be quite an experience knowing that all you can do is float while the monster hooked to your line can pretty well do as it damn pleases. That's a remarkable story with the 85 kilos arapaima being landed later with the fly still in it's mouth. You gotta start hooking these big guns earlier in the day. Fighting fish in the dark ain't much fun.
Thanks for great pics and I hope next time you bring that sucker to the shore!"
