Starting to tick us off...

From an article in the about anti-pirate training for Captians:
Lang, who travels the world in search of the best fishing spots, took a fly-fishing cruise to the Seychelles Islands off the east coast of Africa last month.

Although his boat returned unscathed after a nine-day excursion, Somalian pirates hijacked a sister boat that left later for the same fishing trip.

Pirates are still holding the African crew of the Indian Ocean Explorer after two weeks.
"We had a very intense safety briefing when we got on ship," Lang said. "They talked about sharks, they talked about how remote we were and how hard it would be to get medical attention, but they never mentioned pirates."
Here at FlyfishMagazine two words come to mind. "Go Seals!"
