RE:South Cape Cold but Hot

Just thought I'd mention that we ran into the "pope" (Hawkeye) from the spring clave. He had caught a couple and looked like he was in position to do his usual clean-up as we left. There were a few chunky fish around, hope he ran into them on the ebb current.

Both Bill and Tom were recent fly converts and this scenario was good in that it provided some lessons learned, casting improvement, and action. No fish did anything less than bolt back into the depths, in fact I took a couple of face splashings. All hooks were barbless single fly hooks and there was no difficulty removing any fish, most by simply inverting the hook.

Now... on to bigger fish! I want to see more backing.
