Bushwacking to first fish

I might have had a meeting on the Cape yesterday and gone for a hike with an old buddy.

We might have followed one Cape river way inside only to find large boils in the water and bait getting sprayed across the brackish water.

We possibly could have quickly jogged back to the truck and we were quickly tangling fly lines trying to get a cast out.

To make a long story short, experience always pays off + it might help to have a dog to find the fish for you...

Man I'm so torn. With you as the reporter and the penguin holding the fish, I hold serious reservations on the authenticity. But, my winter blues and those vivid stripes have me wanting to believe!

IF its true, sure beats the trout I caught in Walden's practicing for NZ. Although they were my first trout ever on a fly, so that was pretty cool.

Nice Fish, But ----

Hey Pete

Nice fish, but how much did it cost to have the dog mounted in that Stance?

Let me guess... I've heard of 20# holdovers taken through the ice in a pond by my place...or Pete picked up a wall mount at a yard sale.

I bet Pete borrowed that from the CAC one night when he was partying with his biker friends who, as Pete tells it, rent the place during the winter.

Any picture with Pete in it should come under heavy scrutiny.

Must have been one heck of a battle with the fish constantly swimming in counter-clockwise circles .

As you can see, Pete's a heck of a roll caster! Nabbed that one one right out of John's open window. Hey pete! You missed April fools day. That was 14 days ago. You can fool me once but not twice as most of you know!

That is awesome! And totally believable to boot! That eye, though... I've seen one like it before... Oh yeah, the shark in Jaws had one just like it...
