The other day Phil told me about a dream he had where he was chasing permit on the flats when he yelled, "Marlin!" and quickly changed to his bluewater rod and sailfish popper, and made his cast. The hookup was solid and the marlin tore across the flats greyhounding towards the horizon. He woke up before the fight was over and when he woke up he was upset. "It was such a stupid dream because I know that marlin don't show up on the flats, but it was pretty cool while it lasted. Later that very same day I was reading "Born to Fly Fish" blog and was shocked to see that this dream is actually a reality. So cool.
