Those are some really good photos!!

I have a little question though - I can see that there's two people on the boat. I'd have thought this would be tricky for casting from? I mean, are you not scared that you hook your fishing partner when casting? as there doesn't seem to be an awful distance between each other?

I cast slightly to the side instead of over my head and i'd be to frightened i'd hook my mate! :).

 you sit at end of the boat, so you cast over the water, not over your mates head.
Remember the boat has two sides and the fish can swim :wink

mikes boats are big enough for 3, so you should manage fine :z16
