Amen, brothers Sage and SOBF. A few others,[/img]t'll smoke up just fine""Whaddamine it's hooked on the gill cover? I saw it hooked in the mouth in the water. It shook the hook on its last death roll and ended up in the gill cover.""That hook's plenty sharp. I don't need to sharpen it." [15 minutes later: Goddamnit! That bow was 4lbs!]Buddy catches 2 or 3 in a row in the a.m. "That's 4 so far for the day. What do you have? 1-for-2 or something?" Ten hours later at the takeout, you mention that, since he was counting fish, you reckon your released your 20th about a half hour ago. The invariable reply (haughty), [/img] didn't realize it was a competition."When I catch an honest to goodness 12lb steelhead, buddy Slick is always good for "That'll go 9-10lbs -- it's about 29-30." (At least it got me in the habit of carrying a soft tape with me everywhere.)From the preceding, I guess I understand why Slick and I took a multi-year break from doing fishing tours together (plus the unfaithful bastard got married: where's loyalty in that action?* * * * * "She's not that bad looking" (To which the only reply is that she looks like a near-dead chum , but "She'll probably smoke up nicely once you've got the thermometer in her.").
