I took a drive yesterday with my good friend Ken who, like me, needed some ‘out of the house’ time. We headed up to the Youth Camp and did some casting practice. The fish were going bananas chasing minnows and driving ME bananas because they weren’t hitting our offerings. With a little perseverance, and some fine flourocarbon, I was able to fool a couple small ones though. If nothing else, the bullshitting was second to none!!!
My fishin’ buddy Aaron with his first ever river caught salmon. She was a mint bright 20 pound hen caught in late October, 1997 at the mouth of Salt Creek on the Sacramento River below Red Bluff California.
Note: The lure still hanging from the fish’s mouth was an old T-55 flatfish with rusty hooks that Aaron found floating down the river an hour or so earlier. Some guys are just jerks!
