awesome leap

My friends Howie and Paul were up on the Northwest (NB) the other day. Howie hooked a 42 incher, Paul got and made the video. Worth the one and a half minutes! Oh, for the feint of heart, there is the F-word at the very end. Howie's an excitable boy.

Totally awesome! I feel certain even Ricard Strauss would have loved the vid!

Edit: I just watched it about 10 times, and sent it to a friend. I think I may need to play it medicinally in the winter during a slow day on the river.

She was an unforgettable fish, my best yet and a truly humbling experience - sorry about the F-Bombs!


P.S. Gary - I can't wait for October

P.P.S. A link to the Atlantic Salmon Federation's RiverNotes Blog for Sept. 9th - includes a shortened video, no F-Bombs and a description of the fight.
