    It's almost 8:00 AM on the 16th and not a peep. The fishing must suck.

    After hunting in bluebird weather today I was contemplating making a run over the pass tomorrow to fish a couple of days. Then someone made other plans for me.

    i think everyone has been scared away since the reports of the sniper in the trees shooting bead fisherman. lucky for him, still plenty of targets since most snaggers cant read.

    Also, the word of the day is "mis-clip." When in doubt, throw it back. They are getting sloppy, and the game warden might not be as open minded about it as you are.
