  • From Brookies to Crocs

    I can't help it. I wasn't going to share this because I'm afraid of people following me to my Tiger spot (Hah!), but part of the joy of a Big One is sharing it. We truly live in an amazing area with so many fishing options. Two weekends ago my kids were swimming and yakkin' around a flooded meadow while I picked off little brookies. Then the next weekend, I bagged the first Tiger of the season. A 46 inch beast that had my Echo 10wt corked and dragged me around on my SUP.

    D and crowds on tap for this weekend...
    Thought about replacing the background with a picture of Casa Diablo, but I'm not good enough at Photo Shop. Blurring it will have to do. :) I might have been illegally fishing here. Didn't realize the upper reaches of the Clack were closed at this time! It was C&R.

        Clarkman's Black Mamba Special was tucked neatly in the corner of the tank's jaws.

                    Sight fishing. I do blind cast but I like sneaking along with the SUP hunting them. I made a waist rod holster so I can paddle and troll and have line out for a quick strip and cast at a target if I need to. Between a few of us I'd say we have close to a 100 hours of water time with 2 fish landed. Maybe 40 follows and a half dozen actual EATS! It's a low percentage game is not so relaxing. When I lose one or get a bunch of follow to my rod tip, I'm pissed off the whole ride home telling myself I need to go trout fishing. Hah!
