    It brings up one of my all-time favorite words; ambisinister.

    Ambidextrous comes from Latin... Ambi- both or either and Dexter- right or right-handed; so equally right-handed with either hand.

    Denny seems to think his 22" grayling was special... The state Trophy recognition starts at 18" (rainbow trout starts at 32") so he did overkill it just a bit... but 18" is not that hard to come up...
