    I casted upstream in to the narrows above the main pool.
    It didn't even get a chance to sink and big female brown was breaking
    the surface and launching herself in the air. Her head was flailing
    to and fro. Out popped the the hook. Was all done in 3 seconds.

    The trout won today. Ain't it GRAND?

    Joe showed me how it was done.

    Joe called me last night. He read my blog. He gave me a hard time about "losing my touch" He said he would "show me how it was done" in the morning if I needed remedial lessons. I told him the trout would NOT hit again after it was stung yesterday and it needed a couple days rest. He said to meet him at 30 minutes before first light this morning and he would school me. I jumped at the opportunity ....He was talking too much smack and I wanted to knock him down a peg or two.

    We met up this morning. He told me had been at his Dad's already and had cleaned the smoker and was ready to use it. I smiled and we walked down to the hole. Two minutes later we were walking back to the vehicles.
