It occurs to me on a regular basis that we in the fishing world take a few things for granted. I have lived in Jacksonville almost my entire adult life and have been a fisherman since the ripe old age of eight years old.

We’re about to learn how to make soap.” Mary Vastola, the owner of The Ponte Vedra Soap Shoppe, was teaching. You use molds —- it’s a melt-and-pour process. I figured based on my luck with un-molding Jell-O, with half the Jell-O sticking to the bottom of the mold, I’d probably flunk soap making.
