I like looking at my log books and re-reading the posts that make my blood flow. Some are positives and others are negative learning experiences. My favorite has to do with the biggest small stream brown I have ever seen in my lifetime.My buddy Andy invited me to go fishing with him about three weeks before the season closed. It was a three years back. This was when my knee problems were at the worst. I declined. Andy went by himself. I got an email from him after his outing. He sent me a photo of a nice 22-23 inch brown he had landed. He also told me about an absolute monster he had lost. He told me the thing was so big he couldn't control it. It broke off his line like horse hair. This was a quote from Andy's email.
