Post Masters Report

Well I couldn't leave the house until I watched Michelson win the Masters, he finally won a major now maybe the media will leave him alone. After he won I grabbed my stuff and drove down to the river about 6:45 pm. Nice night smooth as glass and no wind. First cast I had a fish on but lost it. Next cast another fish and landed it, about 22" and fiesty. I fished until 8:00 or so and totalled 19 fish, the biggest was as long as my leg and fat as a pig. I lost one pretty big fish that just would not turn on the light St.Croix, he kept digging for the bottom and I could not muscle him up to the surface. I did see him at the surface once but could not get a good read on how big but guessing from the water it moved it was in the mid-30's. Nice night and finally some catchable numbers of fish. I will be back down again soon to see if they are sticking around or just passing through.

Mike M.

Mike, It was good to see him win and I was rooting for him all the way...Long over do for him but he started the 4th round like his old self which had me see the past again... funny thing, and I don't know if you noticed it, but he went around all 4 rounds with a big smile on his face. Maybe a little age and having some fun without killing himself , which you could always see on his face in the past ,pulled him though.

Thanks for the update Mike. Doesn't sound like it will be too much longer.

Tell me that ball didn't mess with his mind one last time before it dropped!! Go Phil.

"Down to the river..."

..Mike, are you talking about the Housatonic? If so, you're the second reliable source I've heard of action there over the weekend.

Good to hear.

FishHawk-

When's the last time you carried doubles for eighteen? - I'd bet we didn't fish for long, either! (oh, and what's the going rate for a tip for a GOOD! caddie, these days???):hehe:

"...And what ball are you playing today, Sir?"; "...Titleist"

There was more drama....changing of momentum at the Master's this year, than a Striblue POST-a- rama. :hehe:

One of the best Masters I ever saw. That's excludes John of course. He's the Fly Master.

Sometimes golf means navigating windmills and clown's mouths, but The Old Course has a particularly dastardly hazard to contend with.

The 18th hole is patrolled by a famous fly tying, rod flailing Yank from Chatham. "Who's that tramping over my bridge......!!" :hehe:

Luckily I caught him during a spool change or he would have reeled me right in. Damn the drag on those Abel reels!
