Hit the Sandy for my first time this season. YES!, I can catch fish in other streams than the crick!:lol::D Took way too long though. Like 7 minutes or somethin :rolleyes:

Pink worm is cheating though so I threw a spinner for a few. Dad watched one chase a fishtopher special, but they did not strike it today :wall: Back to the worm, WHAMMO! This one had the audacity to spit the hook after a great jump and fight. I`m :cool: with an LDR, it was native as well. So here`s a close up of the one I banked.

why the glove?

The Glove make it less stressful on the fish. It actually removes less of the slim that protects the fish from diseases. It is easier to hold onto the fish so you don't need to squeeze as hard!

Good job Metalfisher! Glad you had a cameraman there to take the pics. I wish I could be there tomorrow but alas I am getting strong enough that I am working again after being OFF due to hand surgery.

It`s waaaaay funner, it`s waaaay easier, it`s not as hard on the fish, I don`t have to pack a lame ass net around from hole to hole. Cotton all the way. I don`t like nets, gill or otherwise. When I get my drifter I`ll even look for a pull over spot to do that. I`ll have a knotless, just incase but...... nets suck!

hopefully I can pull one out as nice as yours minus a fin! As a note I have yet to pull a hatchery out of the Sandy this year.. they have all been natives.. i don't know if that is a good sign or just luck..
