The IGFA, apparently hurting for cover material, has run a story on me and my bizarre quest. See enclosed. The numbers will be a bit outdated because the story was written a couple of months before I did the big push on all the unidentified critters, but their media guy Adrian Gray sure does a beautiful job with all the photos. (The cover shot with the eel was taken by Marta, who managed to snap a nice photo while yelling “Put that thing down, you idiot!”)
Yes, this will be in my Christmas letter. And my Thanksgiving cards. And my Labor Day note. And my St. Swithin’s missive. I even sent one to my Mom, which was cool because it saved me having to buy something for Mother’s Day.

PS – Wade Hamamoto hit me back hard for my comments on his daughter Jaime in my last update. You really never know what’s going to happen when you threaten to pepper-spray somebody’s 12 year-old daughter, and his response deserves to be repeated here.
Just in case anyone reads this pure fiction, I would like to have my say. All of the statements that you ( Steve Wozniak ) made in this email are full of half truths and innuendo. I would like to state for the record that my daughter has never outfished me on any Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. (During the school year) Just because she lucked out on a few weekends does not automatically make her a better fisherperson. I am the first to admit that she has caught a bigger golden trevally, african pompano, bluefin trevally, and ok maybe a few other species. It was pure beginners luck. When that luck finally runs out I will again be the #1 fisherman in my family. My attorney will be contacting you very soon about possible legal action. He’s just trying to figure out what part isn’t actually true.
I look forward to seeing you again in June. My 10 Samoan friends are also looking forward to your visit.
