Can't hold back. I hooked fish every month this season but come on now...there's what 4 months at best in our season up there?? It wasn't many but I did hook fish each month. I did not have the opportunity to fish 4 times a week but I do have mobility on the river = sled. I didn't land many fish this year and overall hookup to hours on the water ratio sucked. It's easy to be skeptical of reports like Lelands but I've had more than one day where I've lost 3 or more in a day's fishing. That Saturday, I hooked 3, played 2 (one pig) and landed a nice hen at the end of the day all in different sections of the river. My partner that day did better and I'll leave it at that. This does not change the fact that (in the words of Dylan Tomine) we truly are "fishing for crumbs" Hope next season is better for all including the fish...
