I guess I'll just post on both. :? Anyways, Went to the Web. below Echo to do a combo with Sparky. Got there about 1 pm. First off, there seems to be just enough water flow to keep things healthy. Don't know where it's coming from but a trickle seems to be enough. Pulled a sneak on some Mallards and jumped em and got 2 out of three. :D :D Went back to the truck and stashed my duckies and got my pole out and went back. Found a wonderfull hole. Right away hooked into something big. Fought it for a while and it finally broke off taking both flys. Dang. :( Went back to the truck and put on some 7# tippet and 6# trailers for my two flys. Went back and hooked into some more nice uns, rainbows and browns ranging from 16 - 18 1/2 in. Caught em all on a prince and a dark flash back nymph thingy. Kept 1 ranbow that was very unusual. It measured 17 1/2 in but the girth was as big as I've ever seen. I measured it at 13 1/2 in. :shock: What do ya think? I weghed it at 3 3/4 # witch is about as heavy a fish at 17 1/2 in. can get, right? :eek: Only caught 1 whitie. The Sparkinator had a ball retrieving duckies and chasing fish. :D :D :D
P.S. To add to the hunting part, got 2 spoonies and 2 teal out at the Great Salt lake day before yesterday. :D Things are gooooooood!

Sweet man, you hit into the old hunt/fish combo. That's always a good mix. Congrats on both fronts.

Sounds like a good day there leaky. I'm completly jealous sitting here tied to work. You must no someone, I have tried to find access to hunt that river and have had no such luck yet. Maybe I'll get lucky this year and find out what you all know.

Well, -----------, I thought I'd best not to show any favoritisum, since I was asked to post a pic, of "fatty" on the "other" forum I thought I'd post it here to "keep the peace", so to speak. :wink: I took it just before filleting. Was asked just in time. I'm eating a giant fillet tonight. :D

**** Leaky.... I figured it was big but when you told me yesterday I had no idea it looked like that. I agree with you... that place has some good forage to grow one that big... :lol: Glad its a place that won't get pounded out... I guess in that sense, private water is a good thing eh? I'd like to take you up on the invite... so we'll stay in touch and see if Wendy will let me run up and meet you one of these days before Thanksgiving gets here. Great job on the ducks and fish and WOW!!! on the bow.... :shock:
