Chicago Trout Bum

Fished this morning with Joe Snapper and Dave Heyman. We did fair this morning. I had to go to work so I deposited the two on one of my favorite streams. I told them they would easily catch 20 a piece on the stretch and I predicted a 20 incher. I told him there were tigers in the stream too.

I just called Dave on his cellphone. He said he and Joe were about halfway through the stretch. Dave said this first:

" Thank You Len." He then went on to explain.

Dave caught his first tiger ever and landed a 20 inch male brown with a huge kype and bronze colored on a size 10 cone headed turkey leech I gave him. Then he said he lost a 24 inch minimum female brown in a tiny hole. He said he had it on for a couple minutes and got a really good look at it. It wrapped around the only twig in the hole. Dave did not have a net. I bet he takes a net from now on. The 2 foot long one was on a dropper bead headed prince nymph.

Dave will give me a report later tonight when he finishes the stretch.

You remember the ones you lose longer than the ones you land.

A TIGER and 2 twenty bangers and only half way through the stream!

Will link up with Dave and his photos later.

Dave is "spoiled" now. He won't be able to look at a 15 incher again and think it is a good sized brown.

Another angler I spoiled.

Such is life!

Dave works at the Orvis Shop in Chicago.

Joe Slammer with one of his 30 or so trout from the morning.
Crazy how the sun bled out the person and picked up the reflection better.
