To the the two "flyfishermen" that called me an asshole as I idled my boat
back up river from Holcomb Bridge, what do you want me to do, portage
around you? I'm always friendly to people on the river
and share information on baits and technique, but when
I get cursed just for being in a boat, it's a little too much.
I could slam float tubes, waders, and people who fish
elbow to elbow with other people, but I don't because
everyone has the right to enjoy the Chattahochee. I'VE
NEVER SEEN A GETED SIGN IN THE RIVER YET. Of couse,
Im sure the two "purists" with attitudes probably
had several posted signs along with the corn, cheese, and
red red wigglers in those fancy vests.
I did manage to catch 36 trout today. Eight Browns
and 28 Bows. Big trout of the day was a 22 1/2 inch
Rainbow. Also had six trout over 18". GREAT DAY!!
Caught alot of small trout in the AM on a #20 Hares ear.
When the surface activity stopped, swithed to a 1/64th
sinking brown jig that I worked throught the pools. The
big trout all came as usual on Rapalas. If you question
my integrity about the big Rainbow, ask Chris Scally
about it. I showed it to him. The fish was hooked in the
gikk and I couldn't release it.
