Dream Stream Grand Slam

I don’t know if there is such a thing, but someone got one anyway.

[singlepic id=88 w=100 h=75 float=left]We hit the Dream Stream today, and spent up until 1:30 pm wishing we hadn’t dressed for a winter storm – the day started off cold and gray, and way too quickly moved to warm and cloudless. For me, things got more productive as the day progressed – the morning was a bust, started the afternoon with several dinks, then moved up to a few 12 to 14 inch rainbows. As the sun began its drop behind the mountains I was able to haul in a fat 21 inch brown on a leech to round things out (and no, she isn’t being crushed – she’d just been grabbed out of the net and was in the water a split second later).

The real news here, however, is about the grand slam! Todd Pepin picked up a Kokanee, a stout Brown, and a Pike…in a single outing. We were none too happy to find a pike in the river (they eat trout with reckless abandon), but Todd’s feat has to be recognized. I’m doing that here, where said recognition shall remain for eternity (or until the database gets corrupted).

And last but certainly not least, we caught a lobster. Actually a crawfish, but it was about seven inches long and gunning for my finger when I was setting him up for the pic.

Filled out that bizarre grand slam with a few bows. Really, there were 4 varieties of fish for the day!!

Pepin pitched and picked a pike that perished to protect other piscadors… What’s that song that goes with that?

No mention of our gardening/river clean up? Muy mas moss.

Where’s the action shots? Where’s your brown that extends up YOUR arm? (Sorry again that I didn’t know how to work your camera and capture both your mugs! )

Next weekend it’s all you!
