Wasn't really planning on fishing today due to the 30 mph winds, but my fiancee wanted to do something today and I managed to talk her into going fishing with me.  I went to a black tie formal for her last night so she owed me one!  She just sat by the stream in one spot and played angry birds and read her kindle, works for me. Fished an eastern facing stream and the mountain blocked all the wind which was amazing.  Actually started sweating in my jacket and was in a t shirt the second half of the day.

Fished for about two hours and managed to bring 8 to hand.  The fishing was good and hard to leave, but I didn't want to push my luck with her.  Missed about 6 and had one that was over ten inches that wiggled off as I lifted him out of the water.

It's a bummer that it broke, but I've put some good abuse into it. Still have my little 6'6" brookie rod, but I've been liking using a longer rod for the small streams.  Oh well, that's life.

Sad to see that Okuma go. I figured it would last you a little longer? :-\

Makes me feel like a puss for not going today. Good work man...  'c;

Purty fish.  Sucks about the rod, but that only means a new one is in your future.

Yup, going fishing

Big J

Thanks guys.

And yeaha, It didn't last too long.  I got my $40 worth out of it, may send them an email to see if they will replace it.  Worth a try.
