Went out to McIver this mornin and caught my first fish off of the drift-yes...finally! Shortly after, I hook another one but lost it. Ten minutes later
I hit another and was able to land it and limit. What a day! I found the fish off the drift to be a lot more fun to land than the fish I've caught by bobber in hole.
I'm still never quite sure if I have a fish or the river rocks have me until it starts pulling away-so its always a thrill when you feel it on.

yea thats at dog, there were about 12-15 there this morning, I was in the middle of the drift and had to walk them all in past everyone lol-fiesty fish!
Was using 1/O hook for first catch, but discovered thats why I keep snagging hooks. Need to go light with #4 hook. I used orange corky and white yarn to hook first 2, and a pink corky for the third fish. I lost my lead after first fish but at same time realed in someones lost slinky-which seemed to work just fine.

Combat fishing is the worst, but when your hooking fish it makes it worth it. Congrats on the fishies man, can't beat a quick limit:clap:.
