Re: Ketchin' Fish... the OLD fashioned way.
A few years ago while I was fishing a single barbless stream here, I cast too far and hung the fly in a log on the far side of the creek. I paid out line, walked a little way up stream and across. As I worked my way back down toward the fly, I found a spin rod outfit with a treble hooked spinner on it. I'm hoping it was some poacher who ditched it when the C.O. approached. Mine now!
