I never see anyone there returning fish. It's a slaughter fest. The sooner they get rid of that Dam the better!

Every year anglers drown. As Clint would say "how lucky do you feel?"

He's dressed for swimming, and the water appears to be warm and fairly gentle. Meh.

Wet Wading

Is one of the most enjoyable experiences in fishing I concur with the below, However very unsure why he is doing the tango with the fish he hjas on, what is wrong with bearing down rod right and bringing to the bank, holding and stirring up the entire pool also why is there not a 100ft-200ft diversion zone at the falls, Dumb asses

I think I fish, in part, because itís an anti-social, bohemian business that, when gone about properly, puts you forever outside the mainstream culture without actually landing you in an institution. ĖJohn Gierach

Agree, the fishing looks like a shitshow.

He must have seen Brad Pitt in A River Runs Through It.
Not sure why he covered the ground he did...maybe he wanted to be one with
the fish...happy ending (for him) though.

I thought John Candy was dead! Anyway, the whole group don't look like catch and release kind of guys. Judging from all the fish they have on stringers, looks like a good day though.

Always take an action figure fishing with you. It makes your catch look amazing!
