It is early morning and the sun is shining. You are with your fishing buddies, and you just know it is going to be a great day on the river. Everyone gathers up the equipment, slips on the vests and waders, and starts the trek to the river. Now I ask you ,"How many times have you been chit chatting, shooting the bull, or do what ever you call it, and when you get to the river, you see the catch of the day suddenly splash off to the middle of the river. And everyone yells "did you see that!" I know, more than once. It has happened to all of us.
Remember when you are getting close to the river, shhh! Walk quietly. Speak softly. Always cast into the area where you will be entering before getting to the bank just in case there is a lunker hiding in a cut under the bank or under the willow branches overhanging the river. You will not scare the fish , might get lucky, and start your day off with the catch of the day!!!
'Til next time.
