Oldie but a goodie

Took my mom trout fishing today, just kind of messing around like always. Got home and got some crappy news just as a friend showed up. He decided to take me fishing and away we went. Headed up to the North Santiam and found one of my favorite spots and started drifting. 1st cast, nothing.... too much weight. Reel in cut some lead OFF and away we go for cast #2. Short cast.... tap ........tap........then this shadow came over and inhaled my gear. Fought him in, native. But man he was pretty. Snapped a quick pic and back he went. That's one way to make ya feel better. 06-15-2010.jpg

Sorry about the bad news but i bet you forgot all about while fighting that fish. Very nice! But if you want to sell yarn you need tell us the colors.

Awww gee. You guys are all so kind. :lol: Glo-bug.:rolleyes:

This brute came up and inhaled a drift rig. Pink corkie, PurpleHaze yarn, and the hook was tipped with sandshrimp (mostly because the shrimp flew OFF when I cast out). I did have a little bit of scent on the yarn. He just hammered it. I didn't really have a choice but to reel him in. :shock:

You guys ever use that stretchy spider thread? That stuff works great.
 
autofisher
Magic thread. Yes sir, I use that all the time. The problem with the shrimp staying on, was the fact that the bush 3 feet behind me decided that it wanted my sandshrimp more than the fish did
