Blake says that he is on a perverted wad of fish that are all piled up together but the walk is about 1/3 mile. After wading and slipping on mud and snow we arrive and both of us are bit immediately.
Just stand in one spot and get 25 bites. Damn unreal mass of fish packed into 75 square yards.

We had to de-ice the guides ever 3 minutes or so,but you don't notice it when they are chewing on your fake :D


Blake catches a fish on his last 2 casts and I catch on my last 2 casts. Left em' biting :mrgreen:

Helluva day, my friend. Thanks !!

JT

Very well done. That stretch of river rocks. I was planning to come that way today but little man had a stomach bug last night. I am so longing for warmer days.

No blood shed but we came mighty close a time or two. The big guy gets downright obnoxious when he goes to thumping thumping me pretty bad. Oh yeah.... JT didn't lose his touch while he was hunkered down on the mountain.

Of course the only reason that I caught one more fish than Blake is because he quit fishing for an hour to let me catch up.

Tom,
No Blood on this trip., Reason being is that I have learned how long to hold his head under water to make him shut tha' hell up :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Stone Man back on tha' hump in snow again
