Default 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.

Crazy how the sun bled out the person and picked up the reflection better.
