Images

Keep in mind that I am always looking for images for our newsletter; fish, sunsets, sunrises, other anglers fishing, equipment, anything fishing related. I can use them all.  Large, unedited images are best. Thanks.

Hello All,

You may or may not know I tore my rotator cuff in mid July and therefor have been forced to give up the fly rod until I am healed (shooting for Oct. 1) I have been spending most of my time showing a friend around the tribs and until yesterday had only spent about 5 hours trolling the big water up here. Last night my friend and I headed out at 8pm and 10 minutes later line was peeling. What happened next was absolute worst case scenario. My friend had never netted a musky before and even after a lot of explaining and lots of youtube videos he ended up getting the hooks and fish on the outside of the net. Nothing like first hand experience! He then scooped it but the net was too wrapped up to allow for the fish to go into the bag and it thrashed itself outside the hoop immediately. I then reached out and grabbed the fish by the gill plate and reached for my knipex which I had already laying on my seat and cut the fish free of the hooks and the net. My partner then unwrapped the net and the fish was put in the bag to revive. It was thrashing and all signs were good in the net so it got a bump and one quick (very poor) picture. 30 seconds of reviving and the fish swam straight to the depths. Had this worst case scenario happened to me before absorbing all the C&R techniques constantly preached here that fish would have likely been in trouble. All's well that ends well eh? Knipex save another life. Fish was just over 46" which is a PB by far for me and the bait was a jointed DK Subban.

Thank you Bro,
