Default Re: Becoming Member of 20-20 Club Can Be Challenge

Fatguide, gotta agree with you. It is amazing how often people catch 10 fish over 20" or nothing under 20" on the san juan! When I was guiding there, my clients would catch a fish that was really nice and their first question was, "That's gotta go 20" ", depending on our relationship, I would ask them if I could measure it. If they said OK, I would, when that tape barely reached 17", they were amazed! I gotta tell ya, a 20" trout is very big, I mean VERY big. I was on that river 150 days a year and maybe every other trip my client would catch an honest 20" fish, sometime we could catch a few, but it's not like every other fish was 20". Just some things I noticed. I have not caught a 20" fish in 3 month, maybe tomorrow?
