The gjods smiled on me on this rainy day.
Here's a snapshot of a fiesty chrome fish that had better things to do than get foiled by some goon using bait only two hundred feet into her river. She's around five pounds and displays the nice lines delineating silver and spots on the body, nice clean gray and a faint of blush on her head. A fish you wish you could steady and examine with a magnifying glass. For a couple of hours. As it was, she got a quick beach job and the forceps. Then she tail-flapped five feet through a few inches if water and probably set the cruise on resume.
