Bigsteel, Lilsalmon, Jigs and I went out and hit the Middle Fork Willy..
Great weather and even though the river was a tad high, we didn't get skunked..

I pulled the solo fish, a monster white fish on the 3wt..

You and that 3wt. are fish catching machines! That's a nice white fish anywhere, good job! I know I've said it before, but I love the light line rods!

Been a long time since I caught a white fish but I remember they fight really well!

I had a great time crossing over to the dark side and leaving my gear behind for a day. Thanks guys for being patient lol and thanks rose for letting me use your rod. I still can't find the tip section to mine, not sure how that happened. Gonna have to try this fly thing again though!

I don't know what I was using, but it was fuzzy and gold, and didn't work lol.

Maybe I shoulda used a chunk of pickled squid?

hindsight is 20/20.

It's alway nice to see that friends are still friends when only one gets a fish to the bank/boat! I'm getting waterlogged and I haven't even been in the water.... I am soooo tire of this rain.

Rain, Rain, GO away, come again ...... This Fall!!!

I know that's not how it is suppose to go but you get my Drift! right?
