The Seal Leech was the

fisherman to the right and to the left of me the couple hours I fished. There
was no escaping the crowd today. I was really surprised I was landing trout

The renegade was the only

was not explosive; but hey I will take this size trout all day on the 3 weight.
I ended the trip with this colorful rainbow which went airborne a couple of times. I feel good about today’s trip because it
forced me to forego some of my usual hot spots for a couple of areas I seldom fish. So
I guess I could say I have discovered some new water.
