This photo summarizes the rules. We lost access to the state park you mentioned in the early 2000s. Since t...

Re: Miami / S Florida Current Situation

No news on the 01 Drifter? Maybe nothing changed? If so, the Drifter is similar in 2019, 2020 and now 2021 (01) if I remember correct?

Re: line knife or hook knife, slightly bigger one recommendations
