The Last Soft Water Henrys Lake Trip

I played hookie.  I admit it, to the chagrin of my wife.  She is always kind enough to give me "the look" when I consider skipping out on my classes.  All I can say is, I'm so glad I did!  I only wish I could make it out one more time, but unfortunately midterms have me tied down.  Blah.  Well here are the goods from what appears to be my last trip to Henry's lake in its liquid form this year.

The lunge netting technique
Josh's beautiful cut
Looking at this pic just reminded me... when we first arrived at this spot we had a crusty old codger try and convince us that the fishing that day was an "exercise in futility."  Those were his exact words.  He was clearly trying to discourage us from fishing this area, and at this particular time.  When I tried to be kind and chat a bit about the change in water temperature, he talked in a condescending way and acted as if I had no idea.  He took off just before the show started though.  I sure would have loved to have seen his face when we started sticking fish after fish.

Josh's net was just a bit too small for Henrys.  Those fish didn't like staying in it too much.
My wife is so good to me, despite her "look" she is always supportive of my love for fishing, and I can tell that she is glad that I enjoy it so much, even when she doesn't think it's the best idea to skip a class.  Love you honey!
