Went out today on the river to try it again. I was there from 7am til 4:30pm. About halfway through the day I hooked into a fish. It immediately went downriver. And after losing 2 fish a few days ago in the same spot I decided I was going after this one even if I didn't have waders. So I went after it, heading downriver, slipping on the rocks and falling down in the cold as hell water. I probably didn't do it as graceful as ol' Brad Pitt did it in that movie "A River Runs Through It", but I tried. WAY down river the fish spits the hook, and I got to spend the rest of the day drying off. Boy that waters cold. The water was pretty high today. Even higher than it was yesterday.

Nothing like fresh snow melt. lol Sounds like fun even though you lost it.

Oh yeah, it's always a good time. And the weather was great, even got a little sun burned. Though today, (Wednesday) is overcast, I'll probably still go up for the day.

LOL, luckily the water I was making my way through was only waist deep or so.

Your not supposed to admit going in unless you have a fish to show for your troubles. I've been there and done that myself!:clap:
