Did not take long this morning to connect. A short report to follow as need a nap.
Getting a fish very quickly makes it a memorable experience.
so have posted here.
The Drying fans from our water problems made sleeping difficult last night so hit the road at 4am and as well I had to be home by noon to attend a funneral early this afternoon.
About 12 minutes into the trip float down and a miss with most of the Pro cured ghost shrimp gone. With only part of the tail left tried a drift to no avail.
Fresh bug attached by thread and about 3 to 4 minutes after the first bite the Thompson Float ( we call the balsa ones this name, don't ask me why) slips nicely out of sight.
I set the hook and the spring comes out of the water almost as high as the rainbow that spooled me last week. No worries about this happening here with lots of line on the Avon reel that my dad bought for me many years ago in England.
The 7 pound buck the same size as the Middlenatch coho mentioned above actually jumped a number of times trying to shed the hook.
In the space of another 5 miutes I had fresh fish on the beach.
On my return home my wife is still asleep, a note is left that there is fresh fish in the fridge for breakfast for her. She likes fish for breakfast but I will wait to enjoy it at supper tonight. I can taste it now.
A quick and rewarding trip that was worth rolling rolling rolling right along
for at an very early and quick trip.
O By the way Max I was wearing the Leaf hat so the jinz has been broken, Stanleys coming home next year.
Now for a 2 to 3 hour nap.
