But who rigged the rods? Who mosly baited the lines? Who suggested to go fishing, what to use and where to go? To avoid arguement, don't bring this up to them but instead, lean back, crack a beer and let them have bragging rights. We all know who the fisherman with the most experience was that day.

Hey.....(what's up) with that buck in the picture?:shock:

Henry Hagg or Harriet? I was at Harriet yesterday morning and caught 2 browns and a bow. Kept the larger brown considering I have never ate a brown before and never even caught one before too. Place was PACKED! Shoulder to shoulder most of the time but it was a good day! NFR was off the hook too!

Don't forget guys! Browns are NOT stocked at Harriet therefore making them a wild fish. Although it's nice to catch them and legal to take home, leaving them there at the lake would allow them to grow big like they were in the past. Sure would be nice to catch 20inch+ browns out of there again. Just gotta release them to make it happen.:)

I would give anything to get my wife out fishing on a lake. She allows me time to fish but to have her there would make my day! I would gladly let her catch every fish.

Most of the time when a non-fisherperson (woman) goes fishing and takes home the bragging rights it is because they don't know how to screw it up like the rest of us do.....
they just wait patiently for the line to get tight and then pull back. Why can't I do that?

i found through experience that a lot of non fishing women like a romantic day on the lake.... bring a picnick basket and just row them around, scout a few spots... pretty soon after a few such trips, they usually dont mind if you drop a line now and then, maybe they will join in, maybe they will read, either way you csan get the other half in the boat with you eventually...

Great Idea! I tried that 30 years ago and she wouldn't buy it then either...... Maybe three little kids had something to do with it. I got her into the Little Blue Drifter once. She almost fell into the water trying to get out of it onto the dock out in Vernonia.
