Flippin fish!

The Kid, the Dog, and I went fishing for summer steelhead today. We hit the water at the crack of dawn only to find out that the summer hadn't made it to Ranier yet. It was low 50's and over cast and all we had on was shorts, tshirt and flipflops. Kinda cold.

The only thing we could do to keep warm was keep piling on life jackets and getting in the dry bags. Crappy!

When we finally got 4 jackets on each, and shoved ourselves into the dry bags, a rod goes off. Wouldn't you know it!!!!! We both jumped up, and hop to the stern looking like we were in the gunnysack race at a church picnic. Pathetic. We somehow manage to hook the fish, and the battle ensues.

But,,,,,,,,,,the kid crackered it midfight. She is 1 for 4 at this spot in the river. She needs more practice.

That's a funny story!

You don't want to take home a sewer trout anyway!
