What a spectacular day! Nothin beats great company, big fish, and a little cheese whiz on a June Saturday!

DaveS is a great fisherman as noted by his catches. He also fought that beast very admirably, which should be mentioned.
But the thing that struck me, having been my first time drifting, was his oarsmanship. I had never realized what an undertaking it is to position the boat to put the caster in the right place... And he would do that consistently. If only i could have capitalized by connecting on more fished...but that was my shortcomings, not his.

And alby just has that fish sense...always know where they are and how to get them. It's just fun to watch him on the stream.

The fish in the yough are just so strong and healthy. If only the river could produce more substantial hatches. There were a few fish rising even to the sparse olive hatch, so if there were a larger number of bugs, what a destination it would be...even the much anticipated bikini hatch hardly produced a rise on saturday.

That Dave always seems to catch the biggest fish. What's up with that? I might have to make another trip to yinzer country again. Haven't fished there in 15+ years. Great trip guys.
