Sniper Whitey...

Terrible picture, I know.  The story is about mechanics. As in how the hell does a whitefish put that hook in that mouth.  Mega advanced geometry if you ask me.

Standing in one of the fishiest runs in the entire lower river,  I get the telltale sign that every steelhead fisherman is looking for.

Pluck, pluck, pluck...(oh shit, we got a player) pluck....(drop the loop)

Line comes tight....( yes, the fish is still there)

Slight lift of the rod (here we go!)

Wait, not enough umpf to this (WTF, a whitey?)

The fish got me good.  Got my heart going, subjected me to a bit of ridicule from fellow fishermen.

Damn, it almost was...SNIPER!!
