Rookie Angler Overjoyed
Posted 31 July 2013, 12:55 am NDT
Well; we still are experiencing low water levels. The forecast is calling again for rain but only about 10 cm. This will not give us any significant increase in water levels, but we hope that it will keep us from losing any more and maintaining what we have now.

Our one well seasoned veteran angler in the group is hooking numerous fish every day by using his knowledge of the river and where the fish will lay.

Although the water levels are making the fishing more challenging than normal our group; consisting of mainly new anglers are also hooking some fish. I witnessed a nice double header today at Pratts. Although only one of the anglers was able to land his fish they both had a great battle.

One of our young anglers had to head down river and around the corner to land the grilse that he hooked in front of Elephant Rock.

Last evening one of our rookie anglers hooked his first salmon. He was accompanied in the boat by his wife and beautiful 10 year old Granddaughter.

Of course a 10 year old quickly lost interest in the fishing and her Grandfather asked to draw a picture of the salmon that he would catch; in hopes that this would occupy her time.

He was fishing with Nelson at the sandbar and was not having a lot of success. Nelson advised him to just take a break and concentrate.

His Granddaughter finished her picture and proudly showed it to him. With a smile on his face he continued to fish and in a very short time he had hooked a grilse which gave him an exciting battle before he landed it.

He was overjoyed with his success, of course, and his Granddaughter proudly proclaimed that it was because of her picture. Personally I think that it was a team effort between her and her picture and Nelson's tutoring.
