Fishing from a rib

Guys

Just got back from Iceland having spent a few great days there and enjoyed Bogi's superb hospitality. Thanks again Bogi

Couldn't resist not seeing the Parker 750RS which is now enjoying the Icelandic waters and got even invited out on a trip for a couple of hours cod and haddock fishing. Great stuff really had a great time.

Andre,

If you ever get around to installing some rod holders on your rib for trolling I'd love to see how you do it. I'm a fisherman (California) and would like to get a rib someday.

I'd love to do a bit of Pirking up in Iceland, Cod looks a little on the small side but would make a good fillet or three.
