    Default Landing the big one video

    don't know how to embed it, but it's of my last minute or so connected to a 20+ pound atlantic salmon: fall 2012 006 - YouTube

    The whole story is on my blog. Way too long and photo intense for me to post here.

    Just read the blog Gary, looks like a great time! I'd love to be able to get up there at some point, once I find a cure to this broke graduate student sickness...

    The average for my program is ~8 years. I'm not even halfway there. But the steelhead run always acts as a nice balm

    Yikes, that's quite a program! I got an MS and PhD in 5 (normal time for it). Good about that balm, though, eh?

    Very nice Uncle Gary...Very nice

    Was the streamer your own creation?

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    No, Dave, the Orange Sneaky was developed by a fellow named Mike Boudreau in one of the Canadian Maritime provinces in the mid-1990's, specifically for low, slow water conditions. It was incredibly effective a couple autumns ago in similar conditions, so I figured, "why not?".

    She sure was a beautiful fish!

    Gary: Congrats on a great fish! It has been quite sometime since I landed a fish of that size, brings back some great memories (Alaska days).
