After exhaustively training the 1,260 for a solid week, we decided we needed a break from monster lines. It was time for a regular longline session in the park. We setup a 620 ft. (189m) with Spider Silk and a 198 ft. (60m) line with Type-18. Chris and I both sessioned the crap out of these lines. We put the anchors too low on one side of the 620 footer, so we were on the grass in the middle, but we were both pushing our bounces to the limit. Walking the 1,260 for a week straight had made us both better slackers.

Measuring the gaps we will rig

All and all, it was a good day off from the project lines. Taking a day off seems like a great way to keep your mind on the prize!

That's all we have to report for this session.
