Walk on water huh? Combine that with one excellent staff and there you have it - The Complete Angler. Would be cool if Francis I has a fond memory or two of being on the wading and casting side.

It's not surprising who Flyfish as over time many well to do people have like us also have enjoyed it.

Tough job for anyone, let alone someone his age (just ask Benedict). So many people put money ahead of all else, so many people insist on everyone else adhering to only their set of beliefs, so many people angry because they have nothing and never will have anything, wars, diseases, on and on. I wish the new Pope well and, from what I hear, am optimistic about his election.
(You never know who frequents these forums. I might score a trip to Argentina)

Francis 1 is a humble man with humble ways. IF he fly fishes,,,I bet he use's an Eagle Claw rod.

I do wish our new Pope all the Blessings God can bestow on him. In this day and age, he will need it.

I havn't heard to much about him, but think this is a great move for the corporation.

These comments could easily be read the wrong way, in actuality I'm deeply religious.
