The training helped, but I still haven't been invited to try out for the
Fish Olympic team. (-:

Actually, I have to credit Hollywood with the idea for the rigging of the
machete. In 'Nam, I always wore it either on my belt or strapped on the
side of my ruck sack. One night while watching "Braveheart," I saw the
advantage of the over-the-shoulder arrangement. Once you have the handle in
your hand, you're already in position for the downswing. The downside
includes hanging it on branches, fences, etc. if you don't duck low enough,
not to mention photos that appear to show horrible accidents from behind. (-:
