Fishing interrupted

Published on February 23rd, 2009 by Rodney

Three hook-ups on Thursday, two on Friday, one on Saturday, one on Sunday, perhaps I can stretch the good luck streak to five days. I went down to the sweet spot at 4:30pm to catch one hour of fishing before dark. The wind was blowing pretty hard but in the favorable direction so casting feathers was not an issue.

This is what the fish fell for yesterday.

I casted around on the beach for thirty minutes before wandering onto the rocks. Just as I was ready to take another step, I ran into this.

It was just tucking itself into a ball and staring at me. At first I thought it was dead after finding so many dead birds lately. Obviously it was injured, otherwise it would have moved away long before I walked up to it. I decided to make a call to have it picked up, but first I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t going to look like an idiot if it flew away when the animal control guy showed up. I walked more closely, it moved a bit and showed its injured leg. It attempted to fly, but it was too tired.

Soon after a few phone calls, someone from Richmond Animal Protection Society arrived and it wasn’t a challenge to catch it.

I resumed fishing, hoping that Mother Nature would reward me after some good deed. I don’t ask for much, a 12lb bull trout, or 12 1lb cutthroat trout would do. No such luck, it got dark not long after so I ended the shortest outing of this month.

Just another exciting fishing adventure at Garry Point Park.
