Well Emma since you asked :P tis the steelhead, the elusive sea run rainbow trout. Even without my lucky sock I still managed to land a 8 pounder...a nice hen
A len tompson lure brings it home to mama every time
Twas a nice silver bullet to...still had the sea lice on it. Dam near spooled my reel :P
One thing about fishing on the stamp river in my home town of port of alberni are my childhood fishing buddies. We still fish together a few times a year. There names are young billy young, and major dave ( names altered slightly to protect the innocent). Now young billy young, had been a fish packer on a boat for alot of years, and he froze all the end of his fingers off, so all he had were stubs...and he still has them....
A few years ago we were fishing the stamp the three of us, and major dave was calling me from down river, I figured he had a really big fish and needed help. So I put my rod down and ran over to help him out....and so did young billy young....well major dave was calling us for help, but he was back at the truck.....as I approached major dave as ashen white, and shaking like a leaf
.....as we got closer we could see that major dave had a major problem...he had a hook in his lip.!!!!!!!!
Major dave looked at young billy young....billy young shrugs his shoulders and held up his stubbs
major looked at me..and with a shrug I reached into my backpack and handed him my plyers, your on your own Dave.......moral of this story is never use your teeth to tighten a knot on a fish hook...you might get caught
