Holy Cow, I knew that Ft. Lauderdale was part of New Jersey, but didn't know that Island Beach State park was in South Florida now.

The first time you nick your flyrod and break the tip off or bury a Clouser in your shoulder you'll open up your loops.
I've had both happen to me, I now have a special Clouser cast. It involves a lil bit of side arm, open loop, two Hail Mary's and a duck at the end.
