    The stormbreakers we have were built to protect the locks... Not to help people with fishing. That's why sometimes we want to cast 100yards. I guess you could get away with a shorter rod. Do you have any idea what kind of fish you want to catch there ?

    Sea trout... Never caught one. They are here but extremely rare. You can catch nice European Seabass here, up to 3ft, generally 1-2ft. Fights really hard, very tasty fish. Beautiful fish as well and quite expensive to buy so catching one from time to time is a cheap way to eat expensive fish.

    Is it deep water ? Large or small fish ? Are the fish close to the shore ?

    The way we fish here from the beach generally involves casting a long distance.. But in any case, I can cast up to about 150 yards on good day. This is done with 5-6oz of lead. In my experience, spending a little bit on the quality of a fishing rod will help you cast much further and it will feel a lot better while you're doing it. Now you may not always have to cast far but with a longer rod you can also cast closely, it also helps when you have a rocky bottom since it becomes easier to keep the lead off the bottom. More secure, more accurate. Mine were pretty pricey but I've had them for 4-5 years and I fish about 20-30 nights a year and they still look pretty much like new, few scratches.

    Most fishing I do is done on salt water.. Most of it from a stormbreaker, some of it from the beach. I fish for fun but I will keep any fish which look tasty and are big enough. Most fish I catch you can actually eat, it's mostly a question of size and how many you want to take home. :) Especially when there are schools of flat-fish in winter, I've caught hundreds in a single night, hard work. Or mackerel in summer, catching 3-5 at a time. :D For bottom fishing I use a set of shimano ultracast oval blank rods, 425cm/14ft , 7oz casting weight. With Shimano ultegra 14.000 cl4 spinning reels, filled with 20lb line. For floats or jerkbaits, stuff like that, I use a carp rod 360cm/12ft, Fox something, pretty cheap stuff but decent. Don't know the casting weight but anything up to 2.5oz feels okay when you put some force into it. I've got a smaller shimano spinning reel (5000) that I use for this rod with 40lb spiderwire (PE braided line, red). I can give you a lot of information.. What I'd like to know is, does she like fishing actively or waiting until fish bite ? (Question from me to other sea-anglers, why do Americans use such short rods for sea fishing ?!)

    Don't look now, but enabling the insurance lobby to make health care ever more unaffordable--not just for the chronically ill, but for everyone in the country--is another area where you and corrupt GOP senators see eye-to-eye. And war, too. Every time you profess that the Fed is necessary to somehow ameliorate the effects of recessions, even though we're had far worse, longer-lasting recessions in the last hundred years than we ever had while the goofy gold standard was in effect, you're arguing their case. After all, a few years ago, Iraq, Libya, Syria, North Korea and Iran were the only nations which didn't have central banks printing ever-more-worthless money and making the poor poorer. And after eight years of your favorite drone-flying puppet bombing children, there were three. Yeah, you and they have much in common. AM I SPEAKING LOUDLY ENOUGH TO BE HEARD? Clearly P.T. Barnum's wisdom was bipartisan. No matter which side of the aisle you look at, there's a sucker born to it every two seconds.

    1. It should be obvious to even the dimmest bulb that 'we elected a good one but the pressure got to him' leaves open the possibility of pushing through more controlled opposition, while 'we put it over on you dumbasses' does not. 2. You seem to think playing silly conservatives is all that concerns them, but the Russian garbage is obviously much more geared toward keeping silly progressives in the herd. 3. I'm getting blue in the face repeating to you, the media had already lost credibility with conservatives before the election. They had already destroyed that; the tool was broken when they decided to use it as a hammer. Except for certain controlled oppo sites like Alex Jones and Molyneux. They're still getting mileage out of those clowns, thanks to certain stubbornly foolish individuals. I fully understand that all this is too adult a puzzle for some people. I just don't understand why they insist on being so arrogant as to brag about that, and curse others for actually understanding what's really going on. Or, at least, I don't understand why a useful idiot would feel the need to go arrogant. I can certainly understand how a paid shill would think it advantageous to cast aspersions in every direction possible.

    I already rubbed your nose in that. Nobody was going to stand for Bush v. Clinton 2.0, so they brought in your controlled opposition lest people vote for real opposition, like Rand Paul. If the voters want opposition, the voters get opposition. We just get controlled opposition, so we don't vote for real opposition. How did I not make this obvious enough the first time? I used all the best third-grade words. Do people really have to put this stuff in their sigs to keep you from reasserting your debunked blather in different threads every single day? Do you really wake up in a new world every day, or do you just pretend to for money? Do you think nobody notices when Trump shills get owned in one thread, then run to another to say the same damned thing that was just disproven in the other thread? Or to put it another way, someone (who is also throwing stones) appears to be a...

    In 1990, when Jones was 16, Rockwall, Texas had only 10,000 residents. Yet he was outscoring Wilt Chamberlain? How? His graduating class, including the guys, would have been under 150 students!

    Then why did Trump say he would "Bomb the shit out of ISIS" during his campaign, and then drop the largest non-nuclear bomb ever? And why are we still in a dozen Middle-eastern countries, when the President has the power to withdraw troops?

    Definitely. The stress of being a child performer, of them being their families' primary income, of being trotted out in front of audiences of millions, causes issues. For some, though, it's the loss of the adulation, the money, etc, that causes them grief. I remember Tracey Gold saying the writers on Growing Pains writing jokes about how "fat" she was caused her to become anorexic. I'm not even sure why supposedly responsible adults would do that to any child actor. As you say, it's not limited to Hollywood. The music industry chews kids up and spits them out, too.

    There are definitely more than 46 child actors who ended up dead due to drugs, alcohol, molestation on set, homelessness, etc. The list you linked to includes Lark Vorhees (who definitely has mental health issues, based on what her mother has said publicly, and what Lark herself wrote in her books). You didn't even read the link you provided, since the fifth one on your list is Lark Vorhees, and the article clearly states that she's had issues. The article you provided contains lines like "arrested numerous times for domestic violence", "struggled with drugs", "lived through such terrifying ordeals as fielding a stalker eventually apprehended by the FBI", "accused his parents of mishandling his $1.5 million trust fund", "married a woman who was 16 years his senior, at just 17 years old", "arrested for allegedly driving under the influence", "disappeared from the series without mention", "helped former Washington D.C. councilman Harry Thomas Jr., in a scheme to steal money from the city", "in police custody for a DUI, assault, and possession of marijuana, among other charges", and "serving two years' probation for a third-degree assault charge".

    Nope. But we know how he behaved on-camera, in front of a studio full of people: Out of control. It's certainly not hard to believe he was worse behind the scenes, as people are when they know they aren't on camera.
