New Yorku Sanme Ryu :)

Hello,

Although I have been a member of this ryuha for many years, I thought I would share it with you.

Weapons - 7 foot fiberglass rod
Harpoons
Gaffs

Very dangerous, yet often delicious style

Enjoy the nice weather when it is here !

Howard

Howard:

As a scuba diver who has seen the shark population devastated throughout the world, please eat what you catch. The thrill of the kill just hastens the extinction of a magnificent creature.

Re: New Yorku Sanme Ryu :)

Thanks,

All of these sharks were released unharmed.

We were looking for a mako or thresher which are very good eating.

Blue sharks have no urine bladder, so they excrete their urine through their bodies = not so good tasting

No worries, I am a conservationist, I want there to be many fish left for me to catch, eat, and serve to my good friends.

Be well,

Howie

Doccod,

Is that a palandrome?

Always bring guns to a shark fight

Thanks for the laugh!
