You just never know where they'll be
« on: February 10, 2010, 05:41:46 PM »
So I was out fishing the Yakima today and got out of the boat to walk this gravel bar. Crossed over a little side channel and looked to my side and what do I spy with my little eye? This. Then the dog grabbed it and took off with it, had to chase her down! Guess she knew a good thing when she saw it.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Yeah I spent the rest of the afternoon looking for it, never found it. Had to row the rest of the way to the takeout.

Rougheye the fishing is awesome right now. All this warm weather has the stoneflies moving pretty good. Caught 30 yesterday in just a couple of hours in the evening. PM me if you know anyone interested in going

Looks like you have a potential shed hunting dog to me.  All she? needs to do is bring them to you and you are ready.

We went back out this weekend and she brought me one! brought me a little spike that she sniffed out of a brush pile. I was a pretty proud papa at that point. Sky, we didn't catch many that day because I spent the rest of the time looking for the match to that shed. Fishing has been really good though.
