    So the guide was telling me to watch my backcast -- not to spook the fish -- to try to turn my leader over better, not to let my line slap the surface of the water -- to mend the line just this way not that -- I just couldn't seem to get anything right -- well at least when he said "Set The Hook", I SET IT!!!!!

    As soon as my cast went over that tree limb I knew that I'd hook a big one.

    The angler hadn't been too successful out in the river so he wandered up this nursery stream where the pickings were a bit easier.

    Johnny Desert-Cap (AKA Super-net) carefully fishes "Concussion Run" on Tangling Creek. This spot got its name when the limb shown fell unexpectedly and nearly killed an angler. Said angler emerged from a coma three days later and had a lump on his head the size of a squirrel.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
