philias update

I've had a wee email from John Hughes and am pleased to see that Phileas is having fun. Here's what John had to say:

CBbeach Philias update! I finally got Philias to the beach today after returning from Montana. The surf was pathetic but I wanted to get the mat in the water and get acquainted. I fully expected a "float" rather than a surf, but to my surprise I caught a couple of fun ,knee high dribblers. No photos today but we are expecting chest to head high surf with offshores by mid-week and I will be prepared :-). After we left the beach I took Philius around Cocoa Beach to see some of the sights.
