Out at Eagle Creek yesterday and hooked two of these pretty guys:

I suppose it's better to legitimately hook two trout by the mouth, than tail-hook two suckers like I did awhile back.

But, I will say, it's not exactly a test to bring in two 9" trout, once they are hooked, on a rod that's suited for steelhead...they never stood a chance. LOL!

Ah, but this time I was dredging in pocket water with small offerings (per the wise advice I was given for Eagle Creek) like flies/yarn.

Only instead of the 'big dumb trout', I got the 'small dumb trout' ;)
