    Re: A fishing report

    I think Mac is just advertising for his new guiding business. Beetle is negotiating for the first float down the West Branch. He’ll pay extra to sit on Macs Lap.Click image for larger version.

    Years back we met up on the river, and hereís the pic I took of the fish you caught - Iíll never forgot how proud you were to catch a trout! ďAn actual trout!Ē I remember you yelling, and ordering your oarsman Dluver and I take your picture.

    Well, hereís the pic I got of you and your fish from years ago... And again, congrats on that brown trout. Itís a beauty.

Found this beast sipping sulphurs in the tail out and connected on the second cast. Solid brown just north of 22 inches and clearly eating quite well. Not a bad way to start the season.
    Macfly in beast mode! Nice.

    Also nice to see your bff GB back around.

    Re: A fishing report

    I was the oarsman on that float. I remember he kept asking me to get closer as he couldnt cast that far. Finally he worked all of his 9 ft tippet out and hooked that monster. I believe he has a mount of it in his den

    To look good is to fish good

    Well done you got everything wrong on your post. I manned the oars because you said your lombago was acting up again. Beetle backed out at the last minute which sucked because I had cement shoes in his size (ladies petite size 5).
