I for one am pleased that NAV Canada is casting such a wide net as they trawl for incident reports. My buddy Gill, who is a bit of a sucker for this sort of report, tells me that AC Jazz groupers together most of their flying fish reports - in fact, in some years, they pack them in like sardines.

Once again these sharks in the press try and gill us. I will not be caught in their net of deceit. Their bass lies will flounder on the rock of truth.

If I hadn't read the press report I'd have thought it was a load of old pollacks.
