The guys are part of the Calvary Outfitters group and they are both a lot of fun to fish with. They both have extremely busy schedules and only get to fish a few times a year. But, within minutes Jeff and Joe had both hooked up and boated their first rainbows of the day. They both have good casting qualities that improved throughout the day and learned a few things about mending as well as the strip-set.
David's Definition of Strip-Set
A hook set that doesn't raise the rod tip, but pulls the rod tip at a side angle with the dominant hand, while the angler uses the other hand to pull the line tight. Which, sets the hook and starts the fight!
Being on the water as much as I am, allows me the opportunity to see a lot of things. The drifter has been checked for life jackets, my clients, friends and I have been checked for fishing licenses more times than I can count this year. I see this as a good thing and hope TWRA continues to patrol the river as much as possible. What you cannot see in the photo above is the other TWRA Officer who is behind me writing another ticket to a gentlemen who, when asked to show a life jacket for each person in their boat said........
It was good day to be on the water for some Combat Fishing and a good day to be on the water with two fine gentlemen.
