Trapped inside my own mind.
congrats on the first fish.
Did you really put a hook type scale into the gills/behind the gillplate of a wild chinook?

Those net scales are pretty nice. We use 'em on the Situk, and in a couple other rivers, like Drift Creek in AK. But thanks for the good words! I appreciate it. Just tryin to steer you in the right direction is all! And I'm glad you shook the skunk finanlly. I told ya the Wilson is a good one! Haha!:lol: Nice work man!
