    If a picture is worth a thousand word then I should need to actually write anything in this post. I hope you enjoy this video of a trip we took two weeks ago.

    Nunya hasn't been fishing well lately, but Rattlesnake is on fire.

    Moody Blues are cool - I think it works with the video just fine.

    Fun fact. Almost all rattlesnake bites occur as the result of humans intentionally initiating contact. BUT, I did keep one (caught below lower granite dam) as a pet once...a LONG time ago :D

    Nice vid!

    I have a lot of experience handling them. I've milked them for their venom and I have had a few as pets. Don't worry about me.

    70% of rattlesnake bites also involve alcohol...;)

    don't forget religion. I had an ancestor bit that way. I chose "fish handling" as my offshoot.

    Stellar vid. Don't tell anyone the name of that creek. Even me. I'm dying to know, and even if I did, I'd probably never visit, but the curiousity is killing me.

    Great vid and music. I'm glad that you showed stalking on your stomach and the snake. Desert creek fishing is about as different from mountain stream fishing as it gets. There's no picture perfect gravel bars that you can stand on and lob out long distance casts. There is fly grabbing brush and spooky trout.

    I think I fished that exact stretch of water 3 weeks ago from what I can see from your video. I caught a few fish and I saw one fish the size you caught but I couldn't get him to bite. But the wind was gusting to 35 mph that day and the casting really sucked. I put down a lot of fish just trying to get the line on the water somewhere. I'm not a snake fan. Thankfully, I only saw one little one the day I was there.

    It was a little bit windy when we were there not unmanageable though.
