Catch and Release?

Posted: June 19, 2008 by Meskel in Fish Reports, Fly Fishing, Uncategorized

Usually i practice catch and release but some times that special one comes along you just cant let go.

Finaly on Monday afternoon i came up on this 9.5 lbs 21 inch chrome beauty.


That’s a picture of our own Pablo admiring my catch.

Her name is Evelyn Diane Meskel (EV) and she is a keeper for sure.

Stopped by Keith’s today and picked up a side arm in preparation for fending off the boys.

Going to start on her first fly rod after i figure out how to get some sleep.

    I have already been looking at backpacks and lifejackets in EV and Tommy’s sizes. They will have a healthy love for the river by the time they can talk!

    What a gorgeous little lady. Congratulations and enjoy the ride. If you can get her fishing by the time she is 5 and rowing the boat by 12, you should be in great shape. Seriously, what a wonderful gift for you. Sal
