rippin fish lips
Well this feisty fish wanted to try and make it my last day and not his! So i started out casting lures wish fish rolling and going after them but hat no takers, i had no other bait or anything, just lures. I was wading throught water about knee deep and found some gear on he bottom from the flossers so i grabbed it. What do ya know? an orange corkie with yarn. The leader was 5 feet long!!! i cut it down to 2 feet tied it on to my 6lb test. the leader had like 25 on it! i made two casts and hooked into this nice fish. if you know leaberg where the upper rock fingers are... he ran me all da way down to just before the lower rapids. you know the deeper poots behind those fingers? yeah i had to go through that with chest waders on. I had to hold the rod out and low while the fish was going down stream and i was holding on to a tree ( the bottom of it was hanging over the water. I used my left arm and left lag to navigate through the branches to get a spot to where i gout touch bottom, i thought i was gunna have to take a quick swim with them on but had thought about that idea b 4! lol. the fish ended up belly up on the bank 15 minutes later.
