I am a product of the 60's and 70's when it comes to horror movies. My brother forced me to watch re-runs of every Lon Chaney, Jr. and Bela Lugosi movie out there so he could sneak up on me and scare the crap out of me. I couldn't sleep for days when Abott and Costello met Wolf Man and the Mummy. Of course that lead to the inevitable....fear of Sharks from the movie Jaws. Can't even swim in a lake without thinking about it. You know who you are. You are out there. A scardy pants just like me.
One therapy for curing yourself of any fear of sharks is to watch, you guessed it, Sharknado.
The problem is that the movie fails to be credible! Buzzfeed comes to the rescue again and points that all out for us.

I am lucky enough to have one of the best urban fisheries ever only 20 minutes from my house. The James River is the body of water of which I speak. Choosing the right times to go is an art form. One has to investigate the tide chart, consult local "fishing guru's", rely on moon charts and ensure there are no important dates on the calendar or family events to go to. When all is aligned....magic happens.
Sunny, 65 F, incoming high-tide. Went to the secret spot number 1 underneath the I-95 bridge. Used 350 grain sinking line and chartreuse and white clouser.
Caught Three Striper
Yes caught three striper on the fly! They were between 3-5 lbs and fought well. The biggest one got away. I didn't set the hook properly. It felt as if it were in the 20lb range. There are some big striper in the James. One was caught on regular tackle at 74lbs last April 2013. I think it is a state record for a river caught striper. Here are photos of the few I landed.
It seems like the other 21 States are fearful that the Clean Water Act will be focused on their backyards. Big Agriculture is also screaming foul and under the banner of States Rights is leading the charge against the Chesapeake Bay Clean Up. None of the 21 states border the Chesapeake Bay, but they want to impede our progress out of an undocumented fear. Let Virginia, Maryland, DC, WV, PA and DE govern how to manage our "backyard" resource. Please get the facts here at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's website.
