Default Christmas come early...

Fly fishing with a good friend today... I landed the biggest Brown Trout I have ever seen come from the U.P. I feel awfully spoiled after already catching 4 of the biggest lake runs of my life already this year.

James: Now that is what I call a Christmas Present! Congrats on a monster Brown Trout! I've landed some nice trout this past year, but that fish is way bigger than anything I have landed short of King Salmon.

Santa, please send me one.

Congratulations on one fantastic U.P. fish that I believe is still out there waiting for the next person. Just one more reason to live up here.

That thing is huge! I'm jealous not only for the fish, but water that you can't drive on. We are frozen solid as a brick.
