    Crap! Now we're all going to have to pay for your two years in rehab. Don't you ever think of your family? What about the new people in the sport, that picture is just a "gateway drug" should be ashamed! ;)

    Thanks for the info Alex.. Decide to hit the methow instead.. Awesome day as well.. 3 natives, couple big dolly, white fish, and a dinner hatchery in the evening. What an amazing river in the winter, glad it was open, even though just a short time.. so different fron the fall season. Was an perfect day to end the season on the methow...

    Outstanding photos too! I'll be there next season! The methow's a great stream, and you've got the Twisp and Winthrop brewpubs too; altogether a great venue.

    Great pics Jimmy! Glad you had fun up there.

    Alex, my last and biggest fish on the season was hooked on the hang-down, mid-river as I was dialing the Twisp River Pub to place a to go orer!

    This happens all the time, Sue! Just think about all those hunting magazine cartoons where the hunter just dropped his drawers in the outhouse, and the monster deer walks by!! Now that everything's finally closed, I guess I'll have to send in the ol' catch card!
