PAT "I caught two rainbows, I caught eight fish right on the edge of this race,most of them were brookies, I released all of them" JIM "good going man, what a great morning" PAT "I thought about walking farther upstream to see if I can find natives" JIM "how far?" PAT "farther than I ever went before" JIM "alright man, go exploring" Pat climbed up to the top of the hill above where he was fishing until he got ashigh as he could go. He hiked over a mile walking along the ridge until he cameto the edge overlooking the creek. In his sight was a bend in the creek thatlooked good. The creek meandered through the mountains. The get to the partof the creek that he wanted to fish Pat had to climb down the rock ledges below.Pat fished below the bend in the creek he noticed first. It was fast water flowingthrough small boulders. He waded upstream as he worked the current with hisfoxee-jig. When he got to the narrow bend he found a shallow outcropping tocast from. The current cut into the bank forming a deep edge. Pat was almostnervous as he drifted his jig along the deep bend anticipating a fish. After several casts he hooked a fish. To his amazement it was the native brook trouthe was looking for. He measured it before he let it go. The fish was 14 inches,big for a native. Pat kept on casting. He landed two more natives before walkingback to find his father. Jim was casting in the shallower water where he caught the rainbows earlier inthe morning.
