But he danced reel nice. And cut good too. He`ll go in the smoker, even though he was red as red inside. Had to get away from those frickin springers. They don`t dance the way I like. They just don`t have the passion of steel. Got into more but he was the only 1 I got to stick. Too much over hang. Every time I set the hook I was hittin a branch. Got straight tore up! by one of `em. Nymphs for summer steel. You won`t find much more than that hangin OFF my rod unless it`s a spinning rod. Which I gotta get dusted OFF in the next week or so. So here is my dark, not so trophy summer run:

It might not be the centerfold of fish.......... but it's still nice. One of these days you'll have to show me how to properly weild a fly rod as I am incapable of getting a fish with it.
