It's funny you said that! Whem Roop told me he thinks he figured it out the first thing I said was good - I'm gonna tell Powers so he doesn't think I'm on drugs. Then again I was wondering if you found some weeds in the corn patch the way you kept after it.
In any case, spending some time in spring floating around in those secluded ponds is a way to meet some really gorgeous trout. I hardly get thrilled about stocker trout, although it's entertaining I don't get a sense of satisfaction like I do from wild fish. The trout in that particular region of our state have that wild hair. The rumor is that these ponds have not been stocked for many years, yet there are plenty of trout and do they ever look great compared to their cousins fresh off the truck.
Hate to say I ate one a long time ago and the meat was a deep pink / red color. Unless that was all part of the matrix too...
