    I've had a live snake on the end of a fishing line once. I snagged an aggressive watersnake as a kid and then realized the only way the snake was getting unhooked was dead. Didn't try to catch them after that.

    What kind of sound does a the rattle of a rattlesnake make underwater? blubllbu blubl bllbubl bubllblb ?

    I'd need to fish many more years before coming up with the idea to tie a rattlesnake pattern.

    I've got a deerhair bassbug I want to toss there and see what chases it. Should work as trout in BC chase a waking sedge.

    Baby RS are snapping worms back home. They work great.

    I mentioned this before, but two summers ago I caught a nice 19 inch native coastal cutthroat in a lake on a dry. While releasing it, I noticed something deep in it's throat. A very good sized garter snake. Yes sir. :eek:
