    The far bank isn't where all the fish are.

    Took my raft on its maiden voyage and fished all that seductive water I could never get to before. Didn't catch squat except a stick and a sunburn. Fun day regardless.

    Well. As soon as you make it to the other side.... The OTHER side becomes the far bank- and clearly was where all the fish were

    The far bank certainly is always the far bank, regardless of where you are. Steelhead don't look at it quite like that though. They're lazy and usually choose the "easy" side, we need to figure out which is the "easy" side...

    I pulled a complete spinning setup out of the river this weekend, complete with reel, trolling spinner, split shot, two octopus hooks (with barbs), and a bobber (red and white). Cut the crap off and washed the mud away, gave it to my fiance. It's her new fish-pole. Other than that I got bupkis.

    If we didn't have the far side, then we wouldn't have hope! God knows, I haven't been catching much on this side.

    blonde on one side or river and brunette on the other side.

    Brunette yells to the blonde..." how do ya get to the other side of the river" the blonde looks up and down the river... and she yells back...
    " hey stupid, you are already on the other side of the river"
