Sunday With Willi And Shoe

I was lucky enough to sneak out in the afternoon and meet up with Willi and Shoe at a local lake. They had come up a little earlier in the day and Willi had managed a few nice cutthroats before I arrived. I got set up and joined in with them. It was nice to visit and catch up a bit as I hadn't seen either of them for a while. My first fish of the day was a nice rainbow but he popped the hook right at my feet. I was glad to have a take though and got back to it. The next fish I didn't miss and after a decent battle I wrangled in a big female rainbow that was definitely ripe with eggs and in spawn mode. Willi and Shoe stopped on their way out and got a couple pictures for me. Thanks guys. One more take later in the day but that fish popped off after about two seconds. I never got to see it at all but I'd like to think that maybe it was BizzaroPig. :)

My best open water fish of the year so far



What a fish! so beautiful! great catch! Sam
