Come Hungry, Leave Happy

It's Friday night and I am exhausted. I logged hundreds of miles this week for work meetings, ran a bunch of errands for the family, cooked a few dinners and skied up Darby Canyon with The Goose.

I did, however, find time to squeeze in some fishing.

Since my brain is fried and I need to get up early in the morning (for more fishing, of course), this post is going to be a photo essay...

  1. That is a great Photo Essay, sweet fish all the way around. That is not the only higher end TFO rod I've heard of breaking. My TFO Pro Series have handled fish well. Happenstance I suppose.

    1. Thanks Gregg! I think TFO's are great rods for the money, but I've seen more than a few break...but they have a great guarantee.

    1. No, I was fishing a Loop Cross. My buddy Shane fished the TFO. The carp that broke the rod was actually one of the smaller fish of the day - about 10 pounds. It just switched direction abruptly and popped the rod in two.

  5. The fish pics are awesome and Mayor McCheese might be my new favorite fish descriptor (I'm definitely stealing it) but jesus h christ that's a crawdad.

    1. Thanks Pete.

      That's an average adult crawdad in the Snake River, which is why our local carp are fat and happy.

    1. CB - come on out. We'll have a blast. Yellowstone NP, the Henry's Fork, the Teton and the South Fork Snake are just a stone's throw away.
