Winter Outing II

January 18, 2012 [the warm day before the bottom dropped out] in photos and captions.

Wrist-Rocket from my youth, now passed on.  This was a big hit.

DMW Portrait with tree-3-D.  Age 2,091 days.

First brook trout of 2013.  Not measured precisely but I put it at an easy 12 inches.  This fish was not readily taken.  Rather, we sat on a good piece of water and got out the spade: dug and dug and changed depth configuration and mending until it was right.  Good sized mouth on that fish.

The next cast at the same hole brought up this beauty.  Note the spots.  I will look at this image off and on for months and years I think.  Measured by rod demarcations; estimate 15 or 15.5 inches.

Kids landed a couple fish.  All in all we only caught maybe half a dozen.  But then again we weren't fishing too hard.  The sun was out.  Things were pretty good.  Next step will be for them to hook their own trout.

Hit on something here: calibrating the intensity of the fishing to match the company.  These guys will roll; they are up for adventure.  And they learn a lot being out.  Mixing in slingshots, food, exploring caves, watching cows, etc. while fishing with low or moderate intensity...     can work really well.
