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!!
