Short but sweet

Drifted the Willamette again in the evening. We got into tons of Cutthroats and Rainbows including a nice 15 inch rainbow. And this 22-23 inch native Bow, just shy of the legal 24 inch. Catching and releasing it felt way better.

The fight was awesome, saw a great lane on the other side of the drift boat (my friends side) seeing that he was dealing with tackle and being the great friend I am, I said "your missin a nice run" and tossed my gear in.....I hear fish on, our buddy behind us yells..just after realizing he was in a fish, I'm hooked up.....this fish ain't coming down river. We slammed the brakes on the drift boat, after a nice aerial he works his way back to the front of the boat, we bring him over to a nice rock bar for some good old CPR! his tail had a crazy notch cut out of it, pretty much looked as if someone snipped off the tip of his tail fin....hard to see in the pic.
